Abstract:

A need to exists to keep aircraft operators and maintenance personnel aware of the science and technology of corrosion as it applies to aircraft structures. This handbook provides information on the aircraft operating environment, corrosion theory, common airframe materials and their response to corrosion, the detection of corrosion, and methods employed to control corrosion in aircraft structures and materials. The handbook also gives case histories of the deterioration or failure of components in typical aircraft and details the means of detection and the remedial action taken. An additional chapter is devoted to microbiological corrosion. The handbook is intended to assist in the early diagnosis of developing corrosion problems and in the selection of appropriate corrective measures. This AGARDograph was prepared on behalf of the Corrosion Subcommittee of the Structures and Materials Panel of AGARD. Keywords include Corrosion Corrosion preventions Aircraft Corrosion tests and Corrosion inhibitors.
