Stack, M.M. and Abdelrahman, M.S. and Jana, B. (2010) A CFD model of erosion-corrosion of Fe at elevated temperatures in aqueous environments. Advances in Science and Technology (72). pp. 75-86. ISSN 1662-8969
In studies of erosion-corrosion at materials at elevated temperatures, there have been many attempts to model the process. Such models have comprised quasi-static and simulation models. However in many environments, erosion-corrosion occurs in aqueous conditions and can be considerably affected by flowing gases in dry conditions. In such cases, any accurate models of erosion-corrosion must include an algorithm due to flow in addition to the mechanics and chemistry of the tribo-corrosion interactions. In this paper, a CFD model is generated of the tribo-chemical interaction at elevated temperatures. The initial work has concentrated on modeling temperature effects in wet conditions; however, the potential application of the model to dry conditions is also outlined. The results are discussed in relation to existing erosion-corrosion models in the literature at elevated temperatures.
