There are eight [1] classified forms of corrosion, these are: Uniform attack (or general corrosion) Crevice corrosion Pitting Stress-corrosion cracking Galvanic corrosion (two metal corrosion) Intergranular corrosion Selective leaching (dealloying) Erosion corrosion  ref: 1. M. G. Fontana and N. D. Greene, "Corrosion Engineering", Chapter 3, McGraw-Hill, New York (1978). 1. Uniform Attack This is arguably the most common form,...
