Localised Corrosion Monitoring (LCM™)

The effect of a Localised Corrosion event can be seen in the form of a transient in either the Voltage or Current data. Significant transients can last from a fraction of a second to several days. This technique analyses such transients and converts them into charge and subsequent metal loss by a variety of methods. This document is split into three parts:-

Simplified method of quantifying transients in inhibited mild steel systems.

Simplified methods of quantifying transients in passive metal systems.

A wander through the science of Ohm's and Kirchoff's Laws relating to Localised Corrosion Monitoring (LCM™) in passive metal and inhibited systems.
