The role of the alloying element has been analyzed during the oxidation process of stainless steels in the flowing lead bismuth eutectic (LBE) environment. The growth of the protective oxide film of steels has been studied at a mesoscopic scale. The influence of chrome has been studied using the developed stochastic cellular automaton mesoscopic oxidation model, considering the formation of the chrome oxide and magnetite. During the oxidation process, the scale removal effect has been taken into account as well.
