Abstract
A new physics-based approach is proposed to predict galvanic corrosion in complex 3-D structures of multiple materials and finishes typical of Naval aircraft. This computational model will be modified as necessary and evaluated for its capability to predict galvanic"hot spots"that lead to corrosion of Naval air vehicles. The results will be compared to a test system known to experience galvanic corrosion in service.
