Reasons Behind Corrosion

Corrosion is a degradation process that leads to the reversing of material to its lower energy natural state.  Steel for example corrodes to form rust and hydrated ferrous oxides returning to its ore state.

Corrosion is also defined as the irretrievable deterioration of metals which is caused by an electrochemical reaction with exposure to a specific environment resulting in mass loss, energy dissipation, change of properties, and performance deficiency to stand the service life expectancy.

Some of the reasons behind corrosion can be operation related or can be due to lack of appropriate engineering practices in the design phase.
