Abstract:

BACKGROUND Lightweight Cartridge for Small Arms program at Picatinny -- Designingdeveloping stainless steel cartridge case -- For structural support inserting Al plug Galvanic corrosion -- Dissimilar metals that are in electrical contact while immersed in a solution electrolyte 3 main galvanic couples of concern. OBJECTIVE To investigate the galvanic interaction between the materials used in the new ammunition design under aggressive conditions to determine if there will be a corrosion issue in the future.
