Abstract

In localized corrosion and metal etching processes, mass transport between a dissolving cavity and the external bulk solution may be restricted. Often this situation leads to substantial local concentration variations which influence the course of the dissolution process. The effect of fluid flow is to stir the solution in a dissolving cavity and thus to alter local concentrations. The purpose of this investigation is to measure mass transfer rates between small cavities and fluid flowing tangentially past the cavity entrance.
