Abstract

The corrosion of metals exposed to the atmosphere and marine environments is expensive to our societies in terms of structure safety and durability. In this paper, the effects of environmental factors on atmospheric and marine corrosion are reviewed as well as the accelerating models. It is revealed that relative humidity, temperature, sulfur dioxide, and chloride are the major influential factors to atmospheric corrosion. Generally, the increase of these factors would cause the increase of corrosion rate and the accelerating effects are nonlinear in most cases. Interactive effects exist between different factors and the mechanisms are complicated. In marine environment, salinity, temperature, dissolved dioxide, pH, oxidation reduction potential and water velocity can influence the corrosion process simultaneously in even more sophisticated mechanisms. Meanwhile, as the marine environmental factors that mentioned above are strongly dependent on each other, it is difficult to analyse the marine environmental factors and the corrosion rate.
