Flowing Liquid Metal Corrosion of Structural Steels in the Pb-Bi Eutectic
Flowing liquid metal corrosion of structural steels in the Pb-Bi eutectic has been synthetically analyzed according to experimental results, mechanics model and aseptic technique. Foregone researches show that element of structural steels have a big influence on the corrosion of structural steels. The increase of temperature induces the increase of corrosion. High Cr steels, high Si steels and covered by the Al films on the steels can effectively defense the corrosion. Through building up the oxidation kinetics and corrosion-oxidation interactions model can be used to better analyze flowing liquid metal corrosion of structural steels in the Pb-Bi eutectic.
