Innovative Approaches to the Development of Corrosion Resistant Aircraft Alloys

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: THE OHIO STATE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Alex Cho, President &Chief Technology Officer
Award Amount: $69,906.00
RI Contact: Rudolf G. Buchheit
Abstract:
Aluminum alloys are known to suffer from Stress Corrosion Cracking(SCC). SCC of high strength alloys can proceed rapidly, and can lead to devastating structural failures. However, a solid understanding of combined interactions of metallurgical, environmental and mechanical factors surrounding the… More
