Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring



Corrosion is the deterioration process of a material due to reactions with its surroundings. As defined in the Random House Unabridged Dictionary: “Corrosion is the act or process of eating or wearing away gradually as if by gnawing, especially by a chemical action.” The materials that are subject to corrosion include metals,ceramics, polymers, and even our own teeth. To most corrosion engineers, however,

corrosion refers to the oxidation of metals by chemical and/or electrochemical processes. The most common example of metal corrosion relates to its reaction with oxygen or water. Rusting of steel due to exposure to water or humid air is a well-known example of electrochemical corrosion. In this process, the metal reacts with water or oxygen through electrochemical processes and forms iron oxides, eventually causing damage to the steel. The following sections describe the importance of corrosion monitoring and the scope of this book.
