Building Maintenance Model User's Guide


Byron M. Garton


The Building Maintenance Model determines future maintenance costs of military facilities by using a Corrosion Model and a cost estimation formula. The Corrosion Model predicts the corrosion index for various metals at a given site. This is accomplished by applying statistical analysis to the weather data and then mapping the weather data to the atmospheric corrosion data. This document describes the process of executing the Building Maintenance Model, as it exists at the time of this writing, within the common computational environment established under the software integration effort of the Integrated Climate Assessment for Army Enterprise Planning work package.
