Techniques to predict erosive-corrosive wear in pipes conveying single and two-phase water in low-carbon steel secondary power plant piping systems are presented. Model equations for two mechanisms, oxide dissolution and droplet impingement, are introduced and the terms in each theory are defined in detail. Parametric curves showing dissolution model results are presented and the effects of localized wear enhancement due to flow geometries are discussed.
