Corrosion Factors

A point of view proposed by Professor Staehle is that all engineering materials are reactive chemically and that the strength of materials depends totally upon the extent to which environments influence the reactivity and subsequent degradation of these materials.

Factors influencing corrosion reactions

In order to define the strength of an engineering material for a corrosion based design it is essential to define the nature of the environments affecting the material over time.
