Abstract

A major difficulty in cyclic corrosion testing arises from the fact that the variable one would like to measure, metal consumption, can be determined only with great difficulty and little accuracy. The principal of thin layer activation and its intrinsic properties are outlined in this paper. The use of thin layer activation for spallation studies is illustrated with examples of ongoing research within the Institute for Advanced Materials of the European Commission. It is shown that due to its intrinsic properties, Thin Layer Activation can contribute to a greater scientific understanding of material degradation by thermal cyclic and it can aid in a more reliable assessment of the service lives of technical compounds.
