Summary

This report discusses the influence of corrosion on aircraft structural integrity. Brief introductions to corrosion in aircraft and aircraft structural integrity are provided and the literature concerned with the effect of prior corrosion and corrosive environments on static strength and fatigue performance is reviewed. RAAF and overseas experience with structural integrity issues associated with corrosion in aircraft is described, with emphasis placed on corrosion in airframes and other structural elements. The report discusses the difficulties associated with incorporating the effects of corrosion into conventional life management approaches and the contribution of corrosion control programs to continuing airworthiness. Where possible, current research programs throughout the world are reviewed. Finally, potential areas of research are identified, primarily on the basis of their potential usefulness for the future support of RAAF aircraft, and opportunities for collaborative research.
