Corrosion control in the aerospace industry has always been important, but is becoming more so with the ageing of the aircraft fleet. Corrosion control in the aerospace industry provides a comprehensive review of the subject with real-world perspectives and approaches to corrosion control and prevention. Part one discusses the fundamentals of corrosion and the cost of corrosion with chapters on such topics as corrosion and the threat to aircraft structural integrity and the effect of corrosion on aluminium alloys. Part two then reviews corrosion monitoring, evaluation and prediction including non-destructive evaluation of corrosion, integrated health and corrosion monitoring systems, modelling of corrosion and fatigue on aircraft structures and corrosion control in space launch vehicles. Finally, Part three covers corrosion protection and prevention, including chapters which discuss coating removal techniques, novel corrosion schemes, greases and their role in corrosion control and business strategies in fleet maintenance. With its distinguished editor and team of expert contributors, Corrosion control in the aerospace industry is a standard reference for everyone involved in the maintenance and daily operation of aircraft, as well as those concerned with aircraft safety, designers of aircraft, materials scientists and corrosion experts. Discusses the fundamentals of corrosion and the cost of corrosion to the aerospace industry Examines the threat corrosion poses to aircraft structural integrity and the effect of corrosion on the mechanical behaviour of aircraft Reviews methods for corrosion monitoring, evaluation and prediction examining both current practices and future trends
Corrosion control in the aerospace industry is becoming more important with the ageing of the aircraft fleet. In the recent years, aviation industry in terms of corrosion has been undertaken with million pounds. Corrosion control can be one of the aircraft industry's most effective weapons in the battle against airplane structural failures. Left undetected and/or untreated, corrosion can decrease the load carrying capacity of primary structures or act as nucleation sites for fatigue or stress corrosion cracks. Thus corrosion can undermine the integrity of an aircraft and make it unsafe to fly. Therefore, by appropriate maintenance and husbandry, these effects could be decreased. Most of the aircrafts could be maintained by long term and short term inspection check. Nowadays, one of the most important and yet most underestimated support activities for corrosion control in aviation industry is protective coating. Airframe problems associated with corrosion have plagued the aviation industry for decades. The metals that compose aircraft components are subject to several different forms of corrosion, a process accelerated by many factors including prolonged exposure to corrosive agents like industrial fluids, salts, and moisture, or more internal problems such as condensate formation and leaking lavatories and galleys. Some forms of corrosion such as stress corrosion cracking and corrosion fatigue can lead to catastrophic failure if not detected and treated. This volume Corrosion Control in the Aerospace Industry provides a comprehensive review of the subject with real-world perspectives and approaches to corrosion control and prevention. It presents the coverage of the fundamentals of corrosion and the threat to aircraft structural integrity and the effect of corrosion on aluminum alloys. Furthermore, it examines corrosion assessment, evaluation and control including non-destructive estimate of corrosion, incorporated health and corrosion monitoring systems, modeling of corrosion and fatigue on aircraft constructions and corrosion control in space vehicles. This book will appeal to students studying in aircraft maintenance engineering or everyone involved in the maintenance and daily operation of aircraft in addition to those associated with aircraft protection, aircraft designers, materials scientists and corrosion specialists.

Corrosion is an expensive and potentially dangerous problem in many industries. The potential application of different nanostructured materials in corrosion protection, prevention and control is a subject of increasing interest. Corrosion protection and control using nanomaterials explores the potential use of nanotechnology in corrosion control. The book is divided into two parts. Part one looks at the fundamentals of corrosion behaviour and the manufacture of nanocrystalline materials. Chapters discuss the impact of nanotechnology in reducing corrosion cost, and investigate the influence of various factors including thermodynamics, kinetics and grain size on the corrosion behaviour of nanocrystalline materials. There are also chapters on electrodeposition and the corrosion behaviour of electrodeposited nanocrystalline materials. Part two provides a series of case studies of applications of nanomaterials in corrosion control. Chapters review oxidation protection using nanocrystalline structures at various temperatures, sol- gel and self-healing nanocoatings and the use of nanoreservoirs and polymer nanocomposites in corrosion control. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Corrosion protection and control using nanomaterials is an invaluable reference tool for researchers and engineers working with nanomaterials in a variety of industries including, aerospace, automotive and chemical engineering as well as academics studying the unique protection and control offered by nanomaterials against corrosion. Explores the potential use of nanotechnology and nanomaterials for corrosion prevention, protection and control Discusses the impact of nanotechnology in reducing corrosion cost and investigates various factors on the corrosion behaviour of nanocrystalline materials Provides a series of case studies and applications of nanomaterials for corrosion control
Magnesium alloys with their unique physical and chemical properties are important candidates for many modern engineering applications. Their density, being the lowest of all structural metals, makes them the primary choice in global attempts aimed at reducing the weight of transportation vehicles. However, magnesium also creates challenges at certain stages of raw alloy melting, fabrication of net-shape components and their service. The first one is caused by very high affinity of magnesium to oxygen, which requires protective atmospheres increasing manufacturing cost and heavily contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. The second challenge relates to very high corrosivity of liquid magnesium towards materials it contacts. This imposes restrictions on the selection of materials used to contain, transfer or process molten magnesium during manufacturing operations. A mixture of unique benefits and serious challenges of magnesium alloys in solid and liquid states described here makes the book very useful for a broad audience of scientists and engineers from academia and industry.
