Abstract: Corrosion is the most pervasive maintenance and repair problem faced today by Army facilities managers and engineers. To successfully manage corrosion in Army structures, including electrical/mechanical systems, utility distribution networks, etc., due consideration must first be given to site-specific environmental corrosivity factors. When local corrosivity conditions are properly understood, Army engineers, builders, and managers can make more informed decisions about selecting construction materials. This report presents guidelines for properly selecting building materials for use on Army installations located in severely corrosive environments. The text includes a discussion of the various corrosion-severity indices available, and also presents material-selection guidelines for metal infrastructure components as diverse as sheet pile, roof decks, electrical utilities, and heat distribution lines. The guidance presented here is intended to be used in conjunction with related Army engineering documents such as Unified Facility Guide Specifications and Army Technical Manuals.
