Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to determine whether the degree of corrosion to be encountered at one specific location, due to the local weather conditions could be predicted by a mathematical model. The corrosion data used were gathered by Spanish national Institute of Aerospace Technology at Gando AFB, Canary Island, Spain. Only two variables, wind and distance to the sea shore of every location, were included in the model because they were found to be the only two varying from one place to another. In doing so, one formula was devised using regression analysis that was statistically proved to be useful to predict the general corrosion index to be found at every place within a certain range at Gando AFB, Spain.
