Abstract:

A computerized data base program was developed and utilized to monitor corrosion of wheeled vehicles through on site inspection at three field locations over an 18 month period. Vehicle inspection guidelines with corrosion stage levels are discussed. Spare part storage and handling was evaluated at each site. Cost analysis and data manipulation for scaled up operation of Corrosion Data Base Monitorship PRogram is described. Failure analysis of field unit supplied parts was performed and reported. Continued sample data collection will result in improved cost and logistical control of future wheeled vehicle maintenance expenditures.
