    The last decade and a half has seen the development of the discipline of computational corrosion analysis. The joining of electrochemical theory, numerical methods, and computer technology has facilitated rigorous quantitative evaluation of galvanic corrosion systems that now obviates trial-and-error developments, qualitative rules of thumb, and full-scale system experimentation. This paper reviews the development of this capability from its conception in the mid-1970s through its maturation and essentially its completion in the mid-1980s. This review centers on the domain (finite element and finite difference) methods, with a brief review of boundary methods in corrosion analysis.
