Dose-response functions

A dose-response function links the dose of pollution, measured in ambient concentration and/or deposition, to the rate of material corrosion or soiling. The dose/response functions constitute the main results of the programme and are of outmost importance for development of systems for classification of corrosivity of environments, for mapping of areas with increased risk of corrosion, and for calculation of cost of damage caused by deterioration of materials. Two sets of dose-response functions have been developed so far.

Dose-response functions for the SO2 dominating situation are available for many materials in unsheltered and sheltered position after 8 years of exposure (1987-1995) as described in (1). Functions for weathering steel, zinc, aluminum, copper, bronze, limstone, sandstone, painted galvanised steel and painted steel are also available in the official mapping manual.

Dose-response functions for the multi-pollutant situation are available after 4 years of exposure (1997-2001) as described in (2). Functions for carbon steel, zinc, bronze and limestone are also available in the official mapping manual.

Dose-response functions for soiling are not yet available in the official mapping manual.
