Corrosion allowance - Dixie Southern

Corrosion allowance

An extra thickness of metal above what is needed for mechanical strength and safety. The extra thickness, which is determined by the corrosion rate of the metal or alloy, is added to the design thickness to compensate for the anticipated lifetime corrosion and erosion loss or mechanical abrasion.
