  • electrochemical noise (ECN), powerful tools - for corrosion science and corrosion engineering, measurements, data analysis and interpretation of ECN;
  • commercially available data acquisition systems (DASs) - suited to electrochemical noise measurements;
  • localized corrosion processes, pitting and SCC - characterized by transients observed in time record data


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction

  • Noise measurements

  • General corrosion

  • Localized phenomena

  • Applications for real-time corrosion monitoring
