Abstract
A GROWING NEED EXISTS FOR A DYNAMIC COMPUTERIZED DATA BASE THAT WILL EFFECTIVELY MONITOR CORROSION DAMAGE TO THE ARMY'S TACTICAL WHEEL VEHICLE FLEET. THIS DATA BASE SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO FACILITATE BOTH THE ADDITION OF NEW DATA SETS AND THE UPDATE AND CORRECTION OF THOSE PREVIOUSLY ENTERED. ADDITIONALLY, IT MUST HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO ANALYZE THE DATA FOR TRENDS INCLUDING THE SPECIFIC AFFECTS OF TIME, GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION, VEHICLE AGE AND MAINTENANCE, REPAIR, MILAGE, EVOLVING TECHNOLOGICAL CORROSION COATINGS, TYPE AND SEVERITY OF CORROSION. SYNERTECH, ITS PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR, AND THEIR CONSULTANTS HAVE EXTENSIVE RESEARCH BACKGROUNDS IN SURFACE MODIFICATION TECHNOLOGY(TRIBOLOGY), CORROSION AND DATA BASE DESIGN. THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ENABLE THEM TO DEVELOP A QUERY AND MENU DRIVEN SYSTEM THAT WILL MEET THE NEEDS DESCRIBED ABOVE. IN THIS PROPOSAL, A METHODOLOGY FOR DYNAMIC CLASSIFICATION OF CORROSION RELATED INFORMATION WILL BE DEVELOPED. INFORMATION FOR THE SYSTEM WILL BE ACQUIRED FROM SIMPLIFIED FIELD INSPECTION PROCEDURES AND THE USE OF THE SYSTEM WILL ALLOW CORROSIVE PROBLEMS TO BE DETECTED AND SOLUTIONS RECOMMENDED AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.
