Abstract: A statistical model has been developed to predict the anisotropy of intergranular corrosion (IGC) kinetics and effect of microstructure on IGC kinetics in high strength AA2024-T3 alloys. The methodology is to estimate the statistical distribution of minimum IGC path length that will be found through the thickness of a given thickness ST sample using the principle of order statistics. A brick-wall model is adopted for wrought Al alloy microstructure and different distributions of grain dimension are assumed for the purpose of the estimation of total IGC path length. Numerical stimulation using a gamma distribution model stimulated the anisotropy of localized corrosion in AA2024-T3 alloys, which quite agrees with the growth rate anisotropy experimentally determined by the foil penetration technique. Some limitations regarding the statistical model are discussed. The statistical model provides a new approach to predicting and quantifying localized corrosion kinetics on basis of the alloy microstructure.
