Estimation method of SCC initiation site based on electrochemical transients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although electrochemical transients can provide very sensitive indication about the onset of localized corrosion, including initiation of stress corrosion cracking (SCC), information on location of the initiation site is not available. In the present study, we proposed an estimation method of location and magnitude of SCC initiation events, where electrochemical transients associated with local anodic events are measured by multiple reference electrodes and location of the initiation sites are estimated based on relative magnitude of the electrochemical transients simultaneously measured at multiple locations.
