Pitting corrosion of AISI 304L stainless steel in a solution of FeCl3 is evaluated by computer image processing methods. Pitting probability and histograms of pit-areas are computed. Pitting probability is defined as the ratio of pitted area over the total area. The pitting probability in this work was found to be 9.73%. Computer image processing is shown to be a promising tool for statistical evaluation of pitting corrosion.
