    Abstract

    As part of a program to develop predictive methods to estimate the long-term durability of aluminum parts, a methodology was developed to calculate the chemical composition of condensates formed on aluminum exposed to polluted air.

    In this study, it is proposed that the maximum concentrations of ionic species in a condensate must be limited by the equilibrium condition established between the dissolved ions and the gases from which they formed.
