• A cellular automaton model using method of global restructuring on the growth and corrosion during the formation of the passive layer has been developed.
• A stochastic model, which combines the surface growth and internal oxidation, has been developed to explain the oxidation mechanism of steels in liquid lead alloys.
• Two conference papers have been accepted and will be presented in 2006 International Congress on the Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP '06).
