BEASY Webinar: Using a Galvanic Model to Inform Fracture Mechanics Analysis for an Aerospace Fastener
Join us for free on June 29th @ 9:00 (EDT, USA Time); 14:00 (UK Time); 15:00 (Paris Time).
In this webinar you will learn:
- The benefits of using an atmospheric corrosion model to identify areas of high galvanic stress
- A key corrosion metric used to validate an atmospheric corrosion model
- Ideas on sizing and locating an initial flaw using a galvanic stress map
- How to find the stress intensity factor solution for corrosion representative flaw at the edge of a mechanically loaded fastener.
BEASY Corrosion Manager enables engineers to quickly assess the risk to components and structures of galvanic corrosion and the effectiveness of surface protection systems.
Simulation is not just a design validation tool; It can provide immediate feedback on your design’s performance, enabling smarter decisions early in the development process
The software can predict the location and severity of the Galvanic Corrosion which can occur when dissimilar metals or certain types of composites (eg carbon based) are located in conjunction with each other
The geometry of the materials, the characteristics and extent of the electrolyte including thin films such as atmospheric, deep, and crevice, and the type of mitigation methods employed affect the extent and rate of corrosion. BEASY Corrosion Manager enables engineers to replace the “Find it and Fix it” approach with a “Predict & Prevent/Manage” approach based on understanding of the physics combined with the ability to predict the corrosion behaviour for a range of structures and conditions.
Because BEASY Corrosion Manager incorporates the electrochemical behaviour and geometrical effects, it is inherently more realistic, and informative, than simply comparing potential difference in the electrochemical series.
BEASY Provides a suite of software and services to predict, manage and investigate galvanic corrosion and associated crack like defects
General Applications and Benefits
Typical applications include:
- Applications include components and assemblies of Aircraft, Marine Structures, Automobiles, and other types of vehicles.
- Predicting the location of corrosion sites and assessing the severity of the corrosion
- Identifying the location and extent of corrosion protection measures such as coatings required
- Improving and optimising designs by predicting the best material choices to minimize corrosion
- Performing Sensitivity and Parametric Studies to identify the best design options
- Perform “What If” scenarios to assess the impact of coating degradation over time and coating damage conditions
- Simulation of the time dependent effects caused by changes of corrosion of a surface finish or sacrificial coating which exposes the substrate
- More realistic, and informative, than simply comparing potential difference in the electrochemical series.
- Reduced qualification time and costs
- Polarization database populated with polarization data for many common materials
- Reduced material and process development costs
- Decreased maintenance costs
