Summary:
Tests in a cyclic chamber and in real atmospheric conditions resulted in the development of an improved corrosion coulometer sensor. First tests showed that it responded well in a reproduced environment but not satisfactorily in a real one, although it seemed to present a good correlation with the weather observations. However, these tests allowed a small time step data analysis of atmospheric corrosion and therefore an improved knowledge of this process. Also discussed are the possible ways of retrieving the corrosion coulometer data wirelessly, thus allowing a real-time analysis of atmospheric corrosion on steel structures. Ideas are proposed for improving both the sensor and the electronic package to make the system an efficient monitor of atmospheric corrosion.
