Fundamental Mechanisms of Automobile Corrosion 780909
A brief review of the basic theory of the electrochemical corrosion of metals is presented, with emphasis given to the mixed-potential theory. Currently accepted electrochemical corrosion mechanisms of several major forms of corrosion are reviewed. Galvanic, crevice and pitting types of corrosion are considered. The presently held theories on the atmospheric corrosion of steel is also discussed.
