Markov Chain Models for the Stochastic Modeling of Pitting Corrosion

Figure 1

(a) Evolution of the Generalized Extreme Value distribution fitted to the extreme pit depths predicted in a Monte Carlo framework [7] for a general soil class. The time evolution of the mean value and variance of such distributions are shown in the inset. (b) Time evolution of the functions (13) and (15), calculated using the predicted pitting parameters , and . The two curves of correspond to two different values of in (15).
