Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
Uniform corrosion refers to the attack on an exposed metal surface that results in homogeneous thickness loss that is evaluated by mass loss or measurement of thickness change. This article focuses on the various processes involved in mass loss tests, namely, selection and preparation of suitable test specimens, planning of the experimental technique, posttest sample cleaning, data acquisition, and reporting. It further discusses the test variables addressed during the experimental planning and provides an overview of the other test and evaluation methods of evaluating uniform corrosion.
