Corrosion is expensive. This paper focuses on some of the major issues regarding the pathology of corrosion, from formation to mitigation, and finally to prevention and control. In 1999, the U.S. Congress mandated the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to study the direct costs associated with metallic corrosion in many U.S. industries. The two-year study estimated that corrosion impacts this economic sector nearly $276 Billion or nearly three percent of the Gross Domestic Product

Many methods have been developed in an attempt to prevent and halt metallic losses because of this phenomenon. This paper identifies effective strategies to control corrosion in the cement industry.
