Crevice Corrosion of Iron in an Acetic Acid/Sodium Acetate Solution

Model ID: 12763


Mass transport limitations within thin crevices can often result in the local electrochemistry to differ significantly between the crevice opening (mouth) and end (tip), and as a result of the differences in local chemistry, corrosion may occur. This example models crevice corrosion of iron in an acetic acid/sodium acetate solution. The model reproduces the results of Walton.

This model was built using the following:
