Impoverished, ailing, and hungry, the miners motivate Étienne to try a rebel opposed to the corporate, an overthrow of “the tyranny of capital, which was once ravenous the employee.

7. Manning compared the relevance of a number of accelerated laboratory tests in rating localised corrosion resistance. The electrochemical tests included a 360 mV h-I cathodic to anodic potentiodynamic test and a constant potential test. The electrolyte in all cases was 4% NaCl with 0 . 1% Fe,(SO,),.

The same basic technique was applied by Nagaswami et 01. using, however, deaerated synthetic sea water as test solution [199]. 1 / ,y i A/ I A /f / 3 I I I I I I I I I 2 1 0 Solution (pH) Fig. 1 Am-? (cell Fig. 19e). After Oldfield 1711. Valen et nl. determined the CCT by freely exposing samples to 3% NaCl solution for 24 h, followed by controlling the potential at 600 mV by a potentiostat and raising the temperature in steps of 4"C/24 h. The CCT was defined as the temperature where the stable current exceeded 10 mArn-* [83,193].

In Fig. 19 a number of possible set-ups are shown schematically. There is only one officially standardised electrochemical test so far available and this is ASTM F 746-87, which deals with the susceptibility to pitting and crevice corrosion of metallic surgical implant materials [ 1771. In addition, several other Research Institutes and Companies have developed procedures for testing purposes, for instance SINTEF Corrosion Center [178,179] and Shell [ISO]. Regarding the correct procedures to be applied when performing electrochemical measurements reference should be made to the general text books, including two publications of the European Federation of Corrosion [181,182].
