RATINGS FOR RMSE AND MAPE VALUES RMSE Values MAPE Values <0.01 = Excellent <10 = Highly accurate 0.01~0.02 = Good 10~20 = Good 0.02~0.05 = Fair 20~50 = Reasonable 0.05~0.10 = Regular >50 = Not accurate 0.10~0.20 = Bad >0.20 = Failed coastal and rural zones. After 24 months, the corrosion rates of all CS samples in the industrial zon e were approaching 200 μm/y. Additionally, the ANN and PCA-ANN models demonstrated good forecasting capabilities in the industrial atmospheric zone. For the rural atmospheric zone, the MLR -ANN and P C A-ANN model s both demonstrated suitable forecasting capa- bilities. For the coastal atmospheric zone, the forecasting capabilities of all three models were unsuitable. References 1 E.D.
