The effect of stiffness and strength reduction due to corrosion is rarely included in truss structure layout, topology, or sizing optimization. An example of a corrosion correction for steel truss roof structure sizing can be found in [1]. A simple correction for cross-sectional stiffness reduction is proposed here to illustrate the significance of the effect for a series of 2D structures. The correction is based on a simple corrosion model and considers the exposure angle and face orientation of surfaces [2]. The formulation is presented either for fixed width or fixed aspect ratio rectangular cross-sections, where the affine or nearly affine dependency of the weight objective and the compliance constraint on the design parameters is possible. The compliance constraint for the quasi-static problem is treated as a linear matrix inequality [3]. The Matlab implementation uses the package for disciplined convex programming CVX [4] to treat the linear matrix inequality.
