Pit morphology on sensitized 310S stainless steel has been studied using an image processing method based on reflected light microscopy. Salt Spray (fog) test has been used to induce the pitting corrosion. Morphological pits characters do not depend on sensitization heat treatments applied here. Nucleation rates and growth may be associated with quantity and distribution of chromium carbides. This being so, condition I (heating up to 1065 ∘ C during 1 h and air cooling) and condition II (heating up to 1065 ∘ …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
