Predicting the effect of droplet geometry and size distribution on atmospheric corrosion
Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel
A new approach is proposed to numerically predict and study atmospheric corrosion for ranging droplet size distributions and the influence of the droplet geometry. The proposed methodology allows for a corrosion prediction based on observed droplet size distributions and droplet contact angles. A mechanistic finite element model, including oxygen transport and Butler-Volmer kinetics, is solved in order to obtain the current density as a function of the droplet geometry. This is done for a range of both droplet radii and contact angles. The computed corrosion current densities are then used as input for imposed droplet size distributions. This allows for a calculated material loss estimation for different distributions and electrolyte configurations and shows the extent of the impact of the droplet size distribution on atmospheric corrosion.
