Corrosion Chronicles – NACE

Engineers have long known that the old methods of corrosion prediction (e.g. galvanic tables) and testing (ASTM B117) are inadequate and inaccurate. New capabilities for computational corrosion prediction are improved in order to exactly understand how the corrosion occurs and how severe it will be; and with that information to design more durable systems.

The aim of the session was to provide a discussion Forum to share information and ideas on corrosion modeling and testing so as to predict and minimize corrosion in complex systems. The Forum brought attendees up to speed with developments in the area of corrosion prediction and test development and raise awareness of changes in the MIL-STD-889 specification and how this will impact design methods.
