Most metallic corrosion occurs via electrochemical reactions at the interface between the metal and an electrolyte solution.
Corrosion and Coatings
Electrochemical testing is a mainstay of many corrosion and coatings laboratories throughout the world.
The 21st Annual Short Course is June 4-9, 2017. The course will cover the fundamentals of corrosion and various electrochemical techniques. Lectures and laboratories will be used to illustrate how electrochemical techniques are applied, when they should be used, and how the various techniques can be integrated to solve complex problems.

Measuring corrosion rate of mild steel by three different techniques; Polarization Resistance, EIS, and our newest technique, Electrochemical Frequency Modulation, or EFM for short.
Localized corrosion, including crevice corrosion, is a leading cause of corrosion-induced failures. THE Method (Tsujikawa-Hisamatsu-Electrochemical Method) has been proposed to measure crevice corrosion repassivation potentials.
