    Abstract

    This paper presents guidelines for corrosion testing of titanium with respect to five general modes of corrosion failure that are known to titanium. These modes are general corrosion, crevice corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement, stress-corrosion cracking, and anodic breakdown pitting.

    Keywords:

    titanium, corrosion testing, general corrosion, crevice corrosion, hydrogen uptake, stress-corrosion cracking, anodic breakdown pitting, industrial applications
