An optical fiber corrosion sensor is developed to monitor the penetration of corrosion pits in steel bars. Simply made by encasing one end of an optical fiber into a steel straw. As corrosion penetrates the steel straw wall, the solution and corrosion products fill inside and contaminate the fiber end surface, resulting in a change in the reflectivity.
An investigation into the effect of ppm concentrations of acetic acid on the electrochemical corrosion behavior of API 5L X65 carbon steel in a sour environment. Electrochemical techniques, Linear Polarization Resistance (LPR), Potentiodynamic Polarization and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), were used.
Steel corrosion in concrete structures. Accelerated corrosion tests were performed periodically and the corrosion rates at different time intervals were measured with linear polarization resistance (LPR). The change in the resonant wavelength over time was recorded using an optical spectrum analyzer (OSA).
