Atmospheric Corrosion Dose/Response Functions from Statistical Data Analysis for Different Sites of Mexico
Jose Luis Ramirez,
This work presents the dose/response functions from linear regression analysis of atmospheric corrosion
statistical data from different sites of Mexico. During the last fifteen years atmospheric corrosion characterization was
obtained from different sites, and the results were used as a database for statistical analysis and linear regression
modelling, obtaining the Atmospheric Corrosion Dose/Response Functions presented here. The contribution of each
relevant environment variable for steel, zinc, copper and aluminium atmospheric corrosion, were obtained. The models
present good regression, correlation coefficients, depending on the variables considered in the analysis. Also, using
experimental data, an example is presented for modelling and obtaining atmospheric corrosion iso-linear maps for
different materials in the municipal area of the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos; Mexico for the prediction of atmospheric
corrosiveness of sites with unavailable experimental data.
Keywords: Atmospheric corrosion, CLIMAT method, dose/response functions, iso-linear maps.
