Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
Simulated Service Testing in the Atmosphere
Simulated service testing is the most reliable predictor of corrosion behavior that is important for specific objectives. These include materials selection, predicting the probable service life of a product or structure, evaluating new commercial alloys and processes, and calibrating laboratory corrosion tests in short of in-plant tests and actual service experience. This article provides a detailed discussion on the types of atmospheres used in simulated service testing. It describes the specifics of atmospheric-corrosion test that include equipment, test arrangement, and test specimen; factors affecting atmospheric corrosion; and evaluation of exposed atmospheric-corrosion panels. The article concludes with a discussion on...
