Abstract

In previous studies of erosion-corrosion, several different theories have been developed to produce a model which represents the relationship between particle erosion and chemical corrosion. Regimes in the models define how the two mechanisms behave relative to one another, whether it is erosion dominated, corrosion dominated. This paper investigates the effect of particle and target material on the erosion-corrosion mechanisms. The performance of Fe as the target material will be modelled when considering particle concentration and size. A comparison is made between the erosion-corrosion mechanisms of Fe, Ni, Al and Cu under different conditions of particle size and concentration. By producing several maps, the regimes and wastage rates predicted as functions of velocity and applied potential will be discussed.
