Abstract

Issues in modeling electrochemical corrosion systems V. G. DeGiorgil, E. Hogan2, K. E. Lucas3 & S. A. Wimmef multifunctional Materials Branch, Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC. 2Materials Science and Technology Division, Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC. 3Center for Corrosion Science and Engineering, Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC. Abstract In the past computational results were compared with experimental results in order to validate the computational modeling process. The world defined in the computational model was compared directly to the world defined by the experimental process used to validate the modeling. In many cases, this is where the evaluation of the usefulness of computational modeling ended. The real world, however, is different than either computational or experimental set up. This paper examines differences and means by which experimental and computational work can be used in conjunction to provide a better understanding of 'real world.' Details
