State of the art report on "Survey of Literature on Crevice Corrosion"

A literature review is presented on the techniques which are used to obtain data on crevice corrosion, both regarding the mechanism and the application of alloys. In particular the electrochemically oriented techniques are covered. After a short introduction in chapter 1, the theoretical aspects of crevice corrosion mechanisms and models are presented in chapter 2, followed in chapter 3 by the techniques used in crevice corrosion testing. In chapter 4 the bulk of the literature is discussed regarding modelling, test methods and obtained experimental results, and experience of service application of specific alloy types. Finally attention is given to protective methods in chapter 5 whereas crevice corrosion monitoring is discussed in chapter 6.
