These experiments were carried out to report the anodic dissolution of the API X70 steel at an active anodic potential and to see whether pitting corrosion
occurs after varied exposure periods in the test solution.
Figure 8 juxtaposes a photo of pitting corrosion
in a steel plate and its visual representation on the basis of shallow internal corrosion sensor data.
For the next future we shall measure the corrosion surface and together with depth measurements we shall correlate it, with mass loss of the samples, in order to evaluate the pitting corrosion
in automotive exhaust systems.

The effects of the general or pitting corrosion
are usually losses related to the necessity of exchanging corroded elements, such as the case of corrosion of the ventilation duct  and drain  operated in the pool.
These results suggest that the effect of Mn on the pitting corrosion
resistance of high Mn SSs is rather controversial with various effects being observed.
