  • erosion–corrosion, recognition and control - roles of accelerated corrosion and erosion, attack at isolated spots on metal surface, roughening of surface;
  • corrosion control, using inhibitors - and/or solution conditioning;
  • cavitation attack, controlled by design and materials selection - air injection, controlling cavitation damage


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction

  • Control of turbulent flow attack

  • Control of solid-particle impingement attack

  • Control of liquid droplet impingement attack
