Cellular automata approach to corrosion and passivity phenomena
Abstract: Our research on employing the cellular automata methodology to corrosion and passivation phenomena is reviewed. Examples of a peculiar pit development are found and presented. The diffusion rate in the corroding medium is argued and shown in the simulation results to affect mainly the characteristic length scale for the corrosion process. New data for the pitting corrosion development on a planar interface are presented and discussed.
