    Abstract

    Modern electrochemical theories and techniques are used to explain galvanically induced localized corrosion of metals. Examples used are low-carbon steel, aluminum and aluminum alloys, and stainless steels. The relevance of the galvanic series of metals to predict this behavior and the value of critical pitting potentials and critical protection potentials are discussed.
