Abstract : Electrochemical hysteresis techniques may be used to construct experimental potential versus pH diagrams for alloy systems. Such diagrams are valuable alloy development tools since they provide a basis for comparison of the corrosion behavior of several alloys in a family of alloys. They also permit the presentation of relative corrosion rates for alloys as a function of potential and pH. The influence, if any, of systematic variations in electrolyte composition for example, variations in chloride concentration, may readily be assessed. The technique likewise may be used to investigate the influence of occluded cells such as crevices and pits. (Author)
