The proposed work includes both laboratory analysis of coated coupons and field diagnostics of aircraft. Laboratory aging of multiple coating systems will be conducted under various aging cycles with the effects of fluid exposure (wash fluid, de-ice,etc.) included. Failure analysis of coupons will be correlated with on-aircraft measurements. A predictive model for coating life will be tuned and validated. A web-accessible database containing data generated during this project by S&K and by Boeing.This database will be structured with guidance from CTIO and AFRL/ML coating scientists to ensure a robust design for future data input and mining by others.
