How to simulate corrosion layer using ABAQUS

Dear Forum Members:

Does anyone have a chance to simulate a corrosion layer using ABAQUS? If yes, could you please explain to me what type of constitutive model you use; i.e. UMAT?

Thank you and best regards,

You could take a look at this paper which I co-wrote on oxidation of nickel alloys,

A coupled kinetic-constitutive approach to the study of high temperature crack initiation in single crystal nickel-base superalloys by L.G. Zhao, N.P. O'Dowd and E.P. Busso in Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids

Thank you. I appreciate your insights and helpful suggestions.
