Crevice Corrosion of Nickel with Electrode Deformation

Application ID: 12767

This model exemplifies the basic principles of crevice corrosion and how a time-dependent study can be used to simulate the electrode deformation. The model is in 2D and the polarization data for the corrosion reaction is taken from a paper by Absulsalam and others.

The model and the results are similar to a 1D model by Brackman and others. This model does not account for mass transport effects. For a more detailed treatment of mass transport in a crevice, see the Crevice Corrosion of Iron in an Acetic Acid/Sodium Acetate Solution model example.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
