The Pitting corrosion book covers recent research challenges and various
accomplishments in the field of corrosion. The book is a proven record of excellent
scientific achievements in the field of pitting corrosion.
Pitting corrosion involves local dissolution followed by the formation of cavities on
metals surfaces coated with a passive film, when exposed to an aqueous solution
containing aggressive anions, such as chloride and sulfate. Pitting is one of the most
destructive forms of corrosion, as it causes potential failure of metals and alloys due to
(BQ) In the study, temperature measurements have been made for Ti–6Al–4V workpieces with various duty factors to clarify the essential causes of difficulty in machining titanium alloys and observe the optimal duty factor in terms of productivity and quality.
