Abstract: Most metals naturally corrode in an engineering environment and form corrosion products. The corrosion products can be either soluble or insoluble in the aqueous solution. The insoluble corrosion products (ICP) could have profound effects on the corrosion kinetics of the concerned metal. In this study, a multi-phase-field formulation is proposed to investigate the effects of ICP formation on pitting corrosion kinetics. The Gibbs free energy of the metal-electrolyte-insoluble corrosion product system consists of chemical, gradient, and electromigration free energy. The model is validated with experimental results and several representative cases are presented, including the effect of the porosity of ICP, under-deposit corrosion, corrosion of sensitized alloys, and microstructure-dependent pitting corrosion. It is observed that corrosion rate and pit morphology significantly depend on ICP and its porosity for the same applied potential.
