BEASY Corrosion Manager SolidWorks provides an interface to enable engineers to create models of structures in SolidWorks and transfer the data to BEASY Corrosion Manager to predict the corrosion rates. The complete BEASY model geometry and mesh can be developed in SolidWorks using the BEASY Interface. Surfaces are assigned into groups which are used to facilitate the specification of the model properties and environment conditions. The BEASY results can be viewed using any of the BEASY post processing options.
Typical applications include:
- Works with BEASY Corrosion Manager to enables engineers to quickly develop full 3D
virtual prototypes of structures to predict the rate of corrosion and its distribution
- Assessing the impact of coating damage and coating degradation over time
- Improving and optimising designs by predicting the best material choices to minimize corrosion
- Identifying the location and extent of corrosion protection measures such as coatings required
- SolidWorks CAD geometry can be quickly used to create BEASY Corrosion Manager models
- SolidWorks models with property groups defined can inherit material and model boundary condition from similar models to facilitate the rapid creation of simulation models
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. Applications include components and assemblies of Aircraft, Marine Structures, Automobiles, and other types of vehicles. 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.
