Predictive Models for Erosion-Corrosion under Disturbed Flow Conditions.
J. Postlethwaite , S. Nesic, G. Adamopoulos and D. J. Bergstrom.

Recent advances in the development of predictive models for erosion-corrosion in disturbed turbulent flows are reviewed. The application of turbulence models permits the structure (velocity, pressure, turbulence fields) of the complex flow to be determined along with the calculation of local mass transfer rates of reactants and products. Particle/wall interaction statistics that are required for the application of erosion models are also determined.
