DoD Corrosion Toolbox

Last Updated : 11/14/2019

​The Corrosion Toolbox contains several tools useful for evaluating environmental severity and compiling environmental data, including the ICCET, that were developed as part of the ESC study. These tools can be used to estimate ISO Corrosivity Categories, calculate Wood Decay Hazard Index, overlay various corrosion data and severity indices using interactive maps, view animated maps of monthly corrosivity, and obtain air pollution and weather data from NOAA and EPA databases.  This toolbox includes four corrosion related tools:  

  • ISO Corrosivity Category Estimation Tool (ICCET) - Uses NOAA data (ISD-Lite) to estimate the ISO Corrosivity Category.
  • Wood Decay Hazard Index (Scheffer Index)  Uses NOAA data (GHCN) to calculate Scheffer Index.
  • Corrosion Map - Display of wood decay hazard index (Scheffer-Index) and ISO Corrosivity Categories (ISO 9223) based on steel coupon outdoor exposure.
  • Air Pollution and Weather Data - This script pulls pollution data from EPA databases and NOAA Weather Data from the ISD-Lite Database. Outputs hourly data, missing data is linearly interpolated.
