Corrosion

The deterioration or failure of metals and alloys by chemical or electro-chemical processes.

1) Dealuminification - A phenomenon somewhat similar to dezincification involving loss of aluminum.

2) Denickelification - A phenomenon somewhat similar to dezincification involving loss of nickel.

2) Denickelification - A phenomenon somewhat similar to dezincification involving loss of nickel.

4) Erosion - The abrasion of metal or other material by liquid or gas, usually accelerated by presence of solid particles of matter in suspension, and sometimes by corrosion.

a) Cavitation - The damage caused to a material by a moving liquid and associated with the formation and collapse of cavities in the liquid at the solid-liquid interface.

b) Impingement Attack - A type of localized corrosion caused by the striking of a liquid, containing entrained gases, on a metal surface.

5) Stress Corrosion - Spontaneous failure of metals by cracking under combined action of corrosion and stress, residual or applied. See Season Cracking.
