Keywords:

  • localized corrosion of iron and steel - typically pitting, action of macrogalvanic cells;
  • macrogalvanic cells, causing localized corrosion in steel in service - commonly formed by bimetallic contact;
  • maximum possible penetration rate - corrosion rate at anode of a macrogalvanic cell increasing, its potential becoming more noble than open-circuit potential

Summary
