Crevice corrosion is initiated when the metal oxide film protecting the metal from general corrosion breaks down as a result of the changing solution composition in the crevice. These concentration differences arise because the crevice geometry restricts the mass transport in the crevice. The purpose of this study was to determine experimentally the critical geometric conditons which permit the initiation of crevice corrosion and to show that these conditions can be predicted by a mathematical model.
