Simulation of Galvanic Corrosion of Aluminum Materials for Vehicles 2010-01-0724

A simulation technology has been developed to enable prediction of galvanic corrosion in chassis parts where two different materials, iron and aluminum, come into contact with each other. When polarization curves representing a corrosive environment are input, this simulation technology calculates the corrosion current to flow and outputs the volume of aluminum corrosion to be formed near the iron-aluminum interface. The simulation makes it possible to predict the depth of corrosion that may occur in automobiles in the market.
