In this project a modelling tool is developed and validated for the understanding of the atmospheric corrosion behaviour of steel protected by aluminium based alloys, applied by hot dip processing. In particular, the role of additives (Mg, Si, Zn ...) is studied.
The research aims to model the impact of the metallic coating compositions in various conditions of the liquid film (pH, Cl-, thickness, ...) and to explore and evaluate how the developed model can be integrated with life time prediction tools of real structures under varying atmospheric corrosion conditions.
The final objective is to design optimal coatings for given atmospheric conditions.
