Corrosion Engineering and Prevention

The transportation industry, including motor vehicles, aircraft, rail, marine, commercial, off-road and defense vehicles, as well as infrastructures, energy sectors, raw materials, manufacturing, health and food industries all experience significant issues with corrosion which results in billions of dollars of loss each year. Corrosion education and prevention is essential to improve and increase the service life of parts and components which may have a significant impact on the economy of various industries and nations.

Materials Degradation in Mechanical Design Wear, Corrosion, Fatigue and their Interactions

Materials degradation from environmental conditions is a common factor that will often occur in mechanical equipment used in every type of environment. These processes can frequently materialize in unpredicted and harmful ways, especially when they interact and lead to early component damage or failure. This five-session course will summarize the mechanisms that cause materials and mechanical components to degrade in service through exposure to deleterious mechanical and environmental conditions.

Fuel Systems Material Selection and Compatibility with Alternative Fuels

This course will introduce the participants to the factors governing fuel-material compatibility and methods to predict and empirically determine compatibility for new alternative fuel chemistries.  By understanding the mechanisms and factors associated with chemically-induced degradation, participants will be able to assess the impact of fuel chemistry to infrastructure components, including those associated with vehicle fuel systems.  This course is unique in that it looks at compatibility from a fuel chemistry perspective, especially new fuel types such as alcohols and other biofuels. 


The purpose of this SAE Information Report is to provide general information relative to the nature and use of eddy current techniques for nondestructive testing. The document is not intended to provide detailed technical information but to serve as an introduction to the principles and capabilities of eddy current testing, and as a guide to more extensive references listed in Section 2.

Refrigerant 12 Automotive Air-Conditioning Hose

This SAE Standard covers reinforced hose, or hose assemblies, intended for conducting liquid and gaseous dichlorodifluoromethane (refrigerant 12) in automotive air-conditioning systems. The hose shall be designed to minimize permeation of refrigerant 12 and contamination of the system and to be serviceable over a temperature range of −30 to 120 °C (−22 to 248 °F). Specific construction details are to be agreed upon between user and supplier.1 NOTE—R12 refrigerant has been placed on a banned substance list due to its ozone depletion characteristics. SAE J51 specification will be phased out as new automotive A/C systems are using R134a. SAE J2064 is the Standard for refrigerant 134a hose. For refrigerant 134a use, refer to SAE J2064.

Mechanical and Quality Requirements for Machine Screws

This SAE Standard covers the mechanical and quality requirements for two grades of carbon steel, slotted, and recessed, 82 degrees flat countersunk, 82 degrees oval countersunk, pan, fillister, hex, and hex washer head machine screws in sizes No. 4 through 3/4 in for use automotive and related industries. The dimensions of these screws are covered in ASME B18.6.3.

Low-Permeation Fuel Fill and Vent Tube

This SAE Standard covers the minimum requirements for a low-permeation tubing (100 g/m2·day or less) for use as a low pressure (14.5 kPa) liquid- or vapor-carrying component for use in gasoline or diesel fuel filler, vent, and vapor systems. The construction shall be designed to be functional over a temperature range of –40 °C to 100 °C for the T1 designation, or –40 °C to 125 °C for the T2 designation.

Ship Systems and Equipment—Part Standard for Studs—Continuous and Double End (Inch Series)

This SAE Parts Standard provides dimensional and quality assurance requirements for studs in the following configurations in standard materials used for ship system applications: a Continuous thread studs in UNRC and 8UNR series in the following threads and diameters: UNRC threads (1/4 through 4 inches) UNRF threads (1/4 through 1-1/2 inches) 8UNR threads (1-1/8 through 4 inches) b Double end studs (clamping type) where both ends are of the same minimum thread length in the following threads and diameters: UNRC threads (1/4 through 4 inches) UNRF threads (1/4 through 1-1/2 inches) 8UNR threads (1-1/8 through 4 inches) Different thread forms on each end are permissible. c Double end studs (tap end type) where the tap end thread length is equivalent to 1-1/2 nominal diameters: Tap End Thread Forms and Diameters Nut End Thread Forms and Diameters NC-5 interference-fit tap end threads (1/4 through 1-1/2 inches) UNRC threads (1/4 through 4 inches) UNRC threads (1/4 through 4 inches) UNRF threads (1/4 through 1-1/2 inches) UNRF threads (1/4 through 1-1/2 inches) 8UNR threads (1-1/8 through 4 inches) 8UNR threads (1-1/8 through 4 Inches)

Socket Wrenches, Hand (Metric)

This SAE Aerospace Standard covers high strength commercial sockets and universal sockets which possess the strength, clearances, and internal wrenching design so configured that, when mated with hexagon (6 point) fasteners, they shall transmit torque to the fastener without bearing on the outer 5% of the fastener’s wrenching points. This document provides additional requirements beyond ANSI B107.5 appropriate for aerospace use. Inclusion of dimensional data in this document is not intended to imply all of the products described therein are stock production sizes. Consumers are requested to consult with manufacturers concerning lists of stock production sizes.

Diesel Engines—Steel Tubes for High-Pressure Fuel Injection Pipes (Tubing)

This SAE Standard specifies dimensions and requirements for single-wall steel tubing intended for use as high-pressure fuel injection pipes on a wide range of engines (Class A), and for fuel injection pump testing (Class B, Reference SAE J1418). Tubing shall be cold drawn, annealed or normalized, seamless tubing suitable for cold swaging, cold upsetting, and cold bending.
