Nondestructive evaluation of corrosion in aging aircraft structures and its effect on structural integrity


"This research can be divided into two subtopics. The first subtopic presents the results of multifrequency eddy current inspection of corrosion damage and machined material loss in clad aluminum 2024-T3 riveted lap joint specimens and its effect on the fatigue life...The second subtopic investigates the effect of strain-rate and corrosion on material properties and acoustic emission (AE) of clad aluminum 2024-T3 during tension testing"--Abstract, page iv.
