Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The effect of particle size on the erosion-corrosion response of a Cr containing steel in NaOH was studied in a rotating cylinder electrode system. The results showed that for the same addition of particles by weight, the corrosion rate in the presence of erosion was independent of particle size. However, the erosion-corrosion rate appeared to be dependent on particle sizes for size ranges from 50 to 100 μm but above this value, this dependence was reduced. Erosion-corrosion mechanism and wastage maps were constructed based on the results showing the variation in erosion-corrosion regimes, as a function of particle size and electrochemical potential.
