Abstract:

The true annual cost of corrosion in NATO aircraft is appallingly large, in spite of the advanced state of knowledge in this field. Interruption and reduction of service, failure of mission, hazards to personnel because of operating failures are additional important factors when assessing corrosion impact. Yet, most premature corrosion damage and failures occur for reasons already well-known, and to a major degree could be prevented by proper and timely appreciation of the problem and threat, and by the use of known preventive methods. Clearly, greater visibility of the problems, expanded engineering education and better practical transfer of technology and knowledge are needed. This Lecture Series was structured with this situation in mind. It covers the signigicance, implications and economics of corrosions, and the threats and preventive measures for the product life cycle design, material selection, construction, maintenance and repair, inspection and test.
