Abstract : A number of chemical munitions are housed in thin-walled aluminum containers which could be subjected to corrosion from the chemical agent they contain. This project resulted in the development of an eddy-current inspection method to detect internal corrosion in thin-walled chemical munitions. The method can be used for judging shelf life of munitions suspected to contain progressive corrosion and for eliminating potential leakers.
