VEXTEC Receives Phase I SBIR Award from USAF to Advance Modeling of Surface Corrosion

USAF SealThe development of new corrosion resistant designs is essential  to build, maintain, and sustain the United States Air Force (USAF) fleet well through the twenty-first century. Current aerospace designs which include extensive use of light-weight, high strength aluminum alloys are highly susceptible to the effects of corrosion making this of great importance to the USAF.   Therefore, the primary objective of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) topic, awarded to VEXTEC, will be to show the feasibility of advanced modeling for simulating and predicting surface corrosion leading to fatigue damage.
