Computer Techniques in Corrosion Protection


The development of a problem oriented corrosion expert system (CES) is described. The CES has the following aims: (1) compilation of corrosion data files from data obtained by experimental activities or from analyses of practical results, (2) analysis of corrosion problems (determination of environmental aggressivity, degradation mechanisms, and corrosion kinetics) with the use of corrosion data bases and generalized theoretical knowledge, (3) optimizing the selection of technology for the protection of engineering plant, machines, and products from corrosion, and (4) economic analysis of the individual corrosion protections suggested.

Corrosion technologists and designers can utilize CIS to (1) file the results of corrosion research for subsequent application in corrosion analysis and evaluations and (2) objectivize, upgrade, and speed up the designing of corrosion protection including its economic evaluation.

The structure of the software has been devised for the interactive solution of problems. A dialogue of the user and the computer permits protection design optimizing.
