Corrosion-Influenced Failure Analysis

Understanding the effects of corrosion on everything from aircraft to pipelines is vital to ensuring that clients understand how vehicles, equipment, and infrastructure will perform over time. SwRI researchers conduct corrosion-related failure analyses for a wide range of industries such as aerospace, shipping, oil and gas, valves, architecture, architecture, and utility equipment. We examine failed components, determine root causes of failure, and also conduct limited-scope experimental studies to validate possible failure modes and mechanisms.
