The content of the article is about the principle of maximum entropy production rate applied to the description of uniform corrosion. The corroding metal surface is described as an ensemble of microcells randomly moving on the surface. The theory allows to calculate the ratio of the anodic to cathodic areas, as well as the corrosion current, under the hypothesis that the concentration overvoltages and the ohmic drops are both negligible.
