Resumen


In this research a one-year study was run, for two different periods, in eight test stations of the Zulian Region, in which the corrosion rate of steel SAE1010 and 99% copper were evaluated by weight loss. Samples of 10 í—15cm were exposed to the prevailing wind direction in the natural environments, on racks with 45º inclination. Deposition rates of chloride ions, sulfur dioxide, atmospheric dust, and the meteorological variables with greater incidence were determined. The Planetario was the most aggressive station for the steel, with 26.10 μm/year, and the T. Bachaquero test site for copper with 8.96 μm/year. In the repetition study for the first year of exposure, a comparative decrease from C5 to C4 was found, which was due to the faster formation of the protector patina as a result of the increment in contaminants deposition. Later, the Zulian maps of atmospheric corrosion for steel and copper were constructed, using pies to report the results, where the diameter of the pie represents the corrosion rate of the material in each zone and the size of the pie portions represent the effect of each variable in the atmospheric corrosion process.
