This paper firstly provides an overview of major efforts made over the past several decades on developing the test apparatus for the study of erosion-corrosion of ferrous-based steels. The merits and the application range of the set-ups, i.e., rotating disc/cylinder electrode system, slurry jet impingement rig, and test flow loop, are introduced. Secondly, the advantages and limitations of both non-electrochemical and electrochemical methods used for the measurement of erosion-corrosion are presented. Thereafter, the interaction between erosion and corrosion using a cyclic erosion-corrosion method was introduced. The synergy between erosion and corrosion for the steels under the passive state were analyzed on the basis of the breakdown and restoration of the passive film. In addition, the difference between the obtained erosion-enhanced corrosion and the corrosion-enhanced erosion using different experimental methods for steels under active corrosion was discussed. Finally, the interaction between the localized corrosion and erosion was studied through the dynamic change of the local current distribution revealed by the wire beam electrode.
