The engineering method presented in this article is based on mathematical models and theoretical and practical research conducted by the authors, including the results of their quantitative modelling.

The increase in forecasting precision and the provision of application simplicity are achieved through the improvement of the model and through linearization of initial equations. It is recommended to determine the initial data for the calculations based on the distribution of corrosion products along the depth of used structures.
