The purpose of the present work is to model corrosion of implant materials (such as nitinol or stainless steel) in simulated environments both under static and dynamic conditions. The present model seeks to imitate the potentiodynamic testing protocol defined as in ASTM F2129, which is used to evaluate the corrosion susceptibility of small implant devices. The model is currently limited to one dimension and hence the effect of physical features, such as defects and crevices, on corrosion is not the focus of this study.
