Corrosion is the most important materials failure mechanism in industry and annually responsible for the costs amounting approximately to 2 trillion €. The aims of this work are to provide tools that allow to minimize the corrosion losses in raw materials sector by providing real-time information on materials performance of corrosion-resistant alloys under the harsh operation conditions, and by further elaborating the information in the corrosion prediction and materials selection tool with the use of computational modelling. The tools are industrially validated here in operational conditions corresponding to hydrometallurgy industry. The developed corrosion on-line monitoring and prediction software tools respond directly to the needs of raw materials sector and are expected to find market also in other industry sectors facing challenges with materials durability in harsh operation conditions.
