Suchato, Nutthawut; Kalashnikov, Alexander; Light, Roger; Sharples, Steve;

The paper is devoted to the ultrasonic monitoring of accelerated corrosion. In order to achieve non-uniform corrosion (high surface roughness), passivation was applied to the corroding surface. A dedicated electronic multiplexed four channel front end was developed in o... View more
