Example text

What is the Desired Corrosive Behavior? From a corrosioncontrol standpoint, the desired behavior is either immune or passive, while the behavior to be avoided is active. Immune behavior is the most desirable, because corrosion protection does not depend on the stability of protective films. Most engineering alloys, however, are passive in their applications and thus depend on the integrity of the passive film. Where the environment becomes more corrosive, passive metals tend to exhibit localized forms of corrosion, that is, pitting, stress-corrosion cracking, and crevice corrosion.

Most materials used in service are not single crystals but are in fact made up of many individual crystals or grains. In each grain the metal has planes characteristic of the crystal structure of that metal. The planes from grain to grain are not in the same orientation. This gives rise to grain boundaries between the adjoining crystals. Grain boundaries are shown schematically in Fig. 5. Essentially, the grain boundaries are the area of transition from orientation within one grain to orientation in the neighboring grain.
