After immersing in ethanol solution containing 1 wt% FAS for 12 h and then a heat treatment at 100[degrees]C, the obtained surface exhibited a long-lasting superhydrophobicity which was maintained even after 180 days in an atmospheric corrosion environment.
For the end girder part, the lower region of the web panel, the stiffener on the bearing, and the lower flange on the sole plate have been considered to be the regions vulnerable to corrosion due to their atmospheric corrosion environment, which consists of high humidity caused by poor air circulation, sediments, and rainwater (antifreeze) [15].
The main aim of the programme is to perform a quantitative evaluation of the effects of pollutants such as sulphur and nitrogen compounds, ozone, particulates, and other major pollutants, including the effects of low concentrations of these pollutants, as well as climate parameters on the atmospheric corrosion and soiling of important materials, among these materials used in objects of historic and cultural heritage, and to assess the trends of corrosion, soiling, and pollution.
