Ashwini K Sinha • Mostly corrosion rate is measured using coupons. Coupons give only cummulative effect after a defined period of time. This does not indicate the transients which are more important. Other things are water quality, microbiological/organic matter, operating conditions, extent of fouling/scaling, which affect the corrosion behaviour. As a matter of corrosion behaviour along with correlation with other factors should be monitored.

Satendra Kumar • Its really a good move to do but for this as suggested by Mr Manickam and Sinha many factors will influence the corrosion rate. However, considering few important factors with respect to materials and corrosivity from the particular environment on materials using corrosion handbook, a rough calculation can be made using statistics. You can try it but will definately have to work a lot to collect data from the researchers.
