Crevice Corrosion with Electrode Deformation

Model ID: 12767


This model exemplifies the basic principles of crevice corrosion and how a time-dependent study can be used to simulate the electrode deformation. The model is in 2D and the polarization data for the corrosion reaction is taken from a paper by Absulsalam and others.

The model and the results are similar to a 1D model by Brackman and others. This model does not account for mass transport effects. For a more detailed treatment of mass transport in a crevice, see the Crevice Corrosion of Iron in an Acetic Acid/Sodium Acetate Solution model example.
