Abstract:

The galvanic corrosion behavior of 5086 aluminum alloy in three tempers H116, H117, H32 when coupled with more noble metals 1040 steel, naval brass, and Ti-150A titanium and immersed in aerated synthetic seawater, was studied. Galvanic current density measurements, potentiodynamic polarization determinations, and optical and electron microscopic observations were made.
