It can be observed that the [R.sub.ct] values are very big for times lower than 18 hours, and these decreased by two orders of magnitude due to an increase in the biodiesel corrosivity. A similar trend is observed in the [R.sub.b] values; at times less than 15 hours, the values were practically constant, and at higher times a drop in the [R.sub.b] values was observed due to the degradation of biodiesel.
No samples exceeded the KCIW discharge limit for nonpolar FOG and none exhibited the federal characteristic of corrosivity or the state-only criteria for persistence.
Structural engineers indispensably need corrosivity data and composition of atmospheric pollutants of a location for curtailing down corrosion losses [8].
(2010) are reviewing the corrosion models and rates provided by the ISO standards aiming to provide new "basis for the classification of corrosivity according to the C1 to C5 categories".

Another factor in crude oil corrosivity is sulfur content.
Butanol actually is very similar in properties to the gasoline mixture insofar as how it's burned, its corrosivity and things like that.
They cover the generation of smoke and combustion materials from polymeric materials; smoke corrosivity; the transport and decay of combustion products; fire tests to assess the generation of smoke and combustion products; methods for reducing visible smoke in specific polymer systems; and regulations, codes, and standards associated with smoke.
