AGARD Corrosion Handbook. Volume 2. Aircraft Corrosion Control Documents: A Descriptive Catalogue
ADVISORY GROUP FOR AEROSPACE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE (FRANCE)
Pagination or Media Count:
It is the intent of this handbook to provide a ready source of information on the problems of corrosion prevention and control of NATO aircraft. The information is arranged in an easily accessible tabular form and is extracted from pertinent NATO, U.S., U.K. and French documents. The International Air Transport Association IATA is also cited as a commercial reference. As an example, if one requires information on stress corrosion cracking of aircraft steels, it is available in sections I.B. Selection of Steels and II.A. Stress Corrosion Cracking and Hydrogen Embrittlement Corrosion Mechanisms. These paragraphs provide brief information on stress corrosion cracking. They would also direct you to specific sections of the applicable reference documents for more detailed information. The aircraft corrosion control documents used by different countries are all very similar. Differences are principally in emphasis and approach. Each country recognizes that corrosion control is most easily accomplished at the design stage and each provides guidelines or mandatory requirements for the designer. Many of the documents emphasize corrosion control background and importance of corrosion control. Keywords NATO, Military requirements, Steels, Magnesium, Titanium, Stress corrosion, Galvanic corrosion, Drainage, Aluminum alloys, Catologues.
