Abstract:

Thirty-six wrought and nine cast commercial molybdenum-containing stainless steels and nickel alloys were exposed to filtered natural seawater at 30 degree C for 30 days using multiple-crevice washers to create a crevice condition. The relative crevice corrosion behavior of these alloys in seawater is analyzed, and the effect of composition discussed. Author
