The geometry of the circuit also affects galvanic corrosion in that current does not readily flow around corners. This is simply an extension of the principle of distance. Modes of Attack Corrosion of the anodic member of a galvanic couple may take the form of general or localized corrosion, depending on the configuration of the couple, the nature of the corrosion f...
