Corrosion rate variation of SS 316 under simultaneous factors considering turbulence effect
Publisher: Maney Publishing
Abstract:Investigation of corrosion rate under the simultaneous effect of parameters is a new and important approach that makes our experimental media closer to real condition and offers more realistic results. In this study, the effect of some important marine factors including temperature, pH, velocity and salinity on the corrosion rate of SS 316 is considered synergistically using two by two graphical curves. Experiments are performed in turbulence condition, and each parameter is applied at three levels. The results of this research are compared with the achievements of a former synergistic study of parameters, which had calculated the contribution percentage and qualitative influence of marine factors in laminar condition. This research presents the critical points in the change of corrosion rate under the synergistic effect of parameters and compares the capability of factors in changing the rate of corrosion and studies their qualitative effect.
