Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL ENVISIONS DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PHOTOFABRICATION TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE LOW COST ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION SENSORS. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION SENSORS WHICH MEASURE ONLY INSTANTANEOUS CORROSION RATE, THE PROPOSED SENSORS WILL MEASURE BOTH INSTANTANEOUS AND TIME-AVERAGED CORROSION RATE.THE TENTATIVE DESIGN OF THESE SENSORS IS VERY COMPACT, ABOUTTHE SIZE OF A POSTAGE STAMP. THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HEREIN COVERS BOTH THE DESIGN AND PROOF OF CONCEPT TESTING OF THE PROPOSED SENSORS. METALS TO BE INVESTIGATED INCLUDE HIGH STRENGTH STEEL, 1100 ALUMINUM, 7XXX ALUMINUM AND ZINC.
