Predicting corrosion in military aircraft (Materials Performance, Feb 2014)
Aircraft typically comprise multiple materials, each exhibiting unique electrochemical properties. When they are exposed to harsh marine and global environments, the difference in material properties can lead to severe galvanic corrosion, causing safety risks, costly repairs, and reduced readiness.
This article shows how a new physics-based corrosion prediction software tool can be used to predict, assess, and mitigate potential galvanic corrosion problems in the desigh phase, before aircraft are built into the weapon system.
