Keywords:

  • lifetime prediction of materials in environments - predicting performance, nominal topic, “assuring performance” implicit within framework;
  • corrosion-based design approach (CBDA) - purpose of CBDA, components working reliably in their intended applications, and for their intended lives;
  • central activity of CBDA - identifying and analyzing specific combinations of locations and modes, the “mode–location” cases
