Geochemical modeling is being used to understand and predict scaling, susceptibility to corrosion, atmospheric corrosion rates, acid rain, corrosion film solubility, and environmental impacts of aqueous species in runoff. This article discusses the principles, limitations, and applications of the modeling. It explains how to calculate the chemical equilibrium in geochemical modeling and provides information on modeling features.
