The Boundary Element Method Simplifies Corrosion Simulation

February 17, 2016

The boundary element method can be used when simulating corrosion to avoid needing a finite element mesh to resolve the whole 3D structure, saving time for large problems with slender components.

Using Simulation in the Race Against Corrosion

December 28, 2015

A German research institute and a well-known car manufacturer joined forces to investigate the corrosion occurring in automotive rivets and sheet metal. Get the full story.

Corrosion in Oil Platforms

October 7, 2015

The offshore oil industry is plagued by a persistent and costly problem: Corrosion in oil platforms can lead to damage and failure of the structure, loss of business, and even onsite accidents.

Avoiding Ship Hull Corrosion with ICCP and Simulation

August 6, 2015

Did you know that the ocean is an electrolyte? Corrosion commonly seen on ship hulls occurs when there are areas with different potentials within such an electrolyte — saltwater, in this case.

Modeling Corrosion for Automotive Applications

July 20, 2015

Simulation is a way to address the different types of corrosion that commonly occur in automobiles, saving car manufacturers time, money, and resources.

Protecting Aircraft Composites from Lightning Strike Damage

June 11, 2015

Some aircraft have a protective coating to mitigate damage from lightning strikes. Boeing used multiphysics simulation to evaluate thermal stress and displacement in this layer.

A Strategy for Designing Corrosion-Resistant Materials

September 3, 2014

Engineers at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., turned to multiphysics simulation to better understand the fundamental mechanisms behind corrosion damage. Get the full story >>

Intro to Corrosion Modeling for the Oil and Gas Industry

May 22, 2014

From impressed cathodic current and anodic protection to sacrificial anodes, there are several ways you can protect structures from corrosion. We discuss some modeling considerations here.
