Abstract : Corrosion has a significant impact on the life cycle costs of naval aircraft. Materials, energy, labor and technical expertise that would otherwise be available for alternative uses must be allocated for corrosion control. To help justify the added expense of designing more corrosion resistance in future Navy aircraft and spending more in corrosion research and technology, valid estimates of the magnitude of corrosion costs and the relative distribution of those costs among various aircraft types and aircraft systems are important. While many factors make up the Navy's cost of corrosion for aircraft ownership, the overwhelming one is the effort spent doing maintenance. (Author)
