The importance of corrosion as a product life limiting factor will increase with the necessity to conserve limited resources. Thus, an economic model to assess pollution related corrosion costs becomes a useful decision tool. Physical damage, geographic distribution, maintenance, replacement, substitution, and value lost due to decreased utility or appearances are incorporated into this model. These interrelated factors are subject to individual decisions, which can be assumed in calculating best, worst, and most likely cases for different pollution levels.
