It has been demonstrated that the natural atmospheric corrosion behavior of low alloy steels in marine environments can be accurately described by an equation of the form: ΔW = KtN. With this relationship, reliable predictions of long term weight losses can be made from as few as two sets of determinations obtained in relatively short exposures. The reliability of this relationship has also been established for galvanized and aluminized steels.
