Based on a number of test methods, the thicknesses of corroded zones have been calculated as a function of exposure time. Representative values for the relevant rate of progression of the corrosion have been obtained. The increase of the cross-sectional area of the dimension necessary to provide the required strength of structural elements exposed to aggressive media can be calculated by the developed method.
