A theoretical model was developed on basis of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, dislocation kinetics, and electrochemistry, which may lead to the quantitative assessment of material loss produced by the synergism of mechanical and electrochemical factors in an erosion-corrosion process, As predicted by this model, the synergistic effect results mainly from the interaction of two irreversible fluxes, namely, the anodic dissolution current density and the plastic flowing in the surface layer caused… CONTINUE READING
