Abstract:   (944 Views)
Aluminum–magnesium alloys are specially used in high speed boats, submarines, desalination systems, etc.  In this re-search the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy technique was utilized to study the flow accele-rated pitting corrosion behavior of this alloy in 3.5% NaCl solution. To do so, impedance spectra of the samples after 20h of exposure to the test solution at a rotation speeds were investigated. SEM (scanning electron microscopy) method was utilized to investigate the changes in the surface of the samples. Results indicated that under static and dynamic con-dition, the surface growth rate of the pits increases with time. Moreover, at -0.9 V upon altering the flow condition from static to dynamic, the surface growth rate of the pits and their surface fraction increases while the corrosion resistance of the passive layer is time dependent.
