Material scientists and engineers often have to conduct many expensive and time-consuming corrosion experiments to fully qualify a material or design more corrosion resistant ones. Corrosion is a kinetic process that is driven by the underlying thermodynamics of a system that is a material in a given environment.
Thermodynamic investigation of corrosion under various environments is extremely important for efficient design and production of high-quality materials, for advanced processing of corrosion-resistant coatings, for optimal performance of commercial materials in industrial, environmental, medical and military applications and for environmental protections and safety assessments.
Different types of corrosion can be considered using Thermo-Calc Software’s tools.
Examples of applications related to corrosion include:
