Corrosion Issues in Military Equipment and Facilities

To support the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) never-ending battle against corrosion, the NACE Specific Technology Group (STG) 40 serves as a resource by disseminating information and facilitating discussion on identification, causes, and control of corrosion and materials degradation. The goal is to reduce the impact of corrosion on military air, ground, and ship systems, as well as electronic systems, support equipment, and infrastructure.

STG 40 will host a symposium at CORROSION 2021 on Friday, April 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. CST, entitled “Corrosion Issues in Military Equipment and Facilities.”  

The following papers will be presented during the symposium:

  • 11 a.m. – Evaluation of Coating Protection Against Environmental Assisted Cracking of Aluminum Alloys, by Liam Agnew, Brandi Clark, Nathan Brown, Fritz Friedersdorf
  • 11:30 a.m. – Study of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors Built in to Corrosion Control Covers: Do VCIs Last the Life of the Covers?, by Seckin Ozol, Na QI
  • Noon – Surface Treatment to Mitigate Exfoliation Corrosion of 5XXX Series Aluminum Alloys, by Ganesh Kumar Arumugam, Venkat Kamavaram, Andrea Mansfeld, Reza Shahbazian-Yassar, Vinod Veedu
  • 12:30 p.m. – "Water Main Breaks – High Time to Learn from Mistakes and Avoid Further Breaks, by Mehrooz Zamanzadeh, Anil Chikkam, Edward Larkin, Aaron Ulmer, Erik Lahti, Peyman Taheri Bonab, Alyson Char

Attendees will discover more about testing and data on corrosion inhibitors, a protocol that quantifies the crack initiation resistance provided by protective coatings, a proprietary nanocomposite treatment that makes a surface inert to extreme corrosive chemicals and high temperatures, and more.
