In conjunction with Luna, Inc. and engineers at the Air Force Corrosion Prevention and Control Office, researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory have developed a new corrosion and coating evaluation system, CorRES, that can measure the ability of coatings to protect aircraft structures by using sensor panels that measure localized changes during corrosion testing. Unlike conventional coating tests that rely on an expert’s visual evaluation of a test panel at the conclusion of a test cycle, the CorRES takes measurements throughout a coating’s test and transmits data in real-time to a base station for evaluation. Ultimately, the test will reduce costs associated with coating materials development and implementation through better data and understanding. (Courtesy photo)
