Why we use Siemens STAR-CCM+

By connecting the Corrdesa electrochemical database with Siemens STAR-CCM+ we can now assess corrosion risk using 3D models – enabling us to continue tackling the huge and costly corrosion issues.

Watch this video to find out more about how and why we use this fantastic tool

Dr Keith Legg will be at SUR/FIN 2019

Corrdesa’s CTO Keith Legg will be presenting twice at SUR/FIN 2019 in Rosemont, Illinois! The first presentation will be “On-Aircraft Non-Drip Selective Anodizing” at 12pm on June 4th and the second will be “Updates on Galvanic Corrosion MIL-STD-889 and New Corrosion Test Development” also on June 4th and both will be held in Meeting Room 4.

If you’re attending SUR/FIN this year add Keith’s presentations to your planner! Presentation 1 here and presentation 2 here! Both presentations are on Track Session 11 ‘High Reliability Aerospace and Defense Processes’.

Introducing Dalistick Non-drip selective anodizing for on-aircraft repair

Corrdesa is the US distributor for Dalic, the French company that invented the non-drip plating and anodizing technology, which uses a  closed-loop system to selectively anodize or electroplate, even overhead. The nondrip technology uses airflow to hold the electrolyte in the plating tool and on the surface, avoiding the need for seals or dams. Find out more about the tool here or contact us!

At MRO Americas we’re showing how the latest non-drip brush plating technology ensures low waste, low emissions but the highest product quality. The machines can be used on-aircraft in small spaces and overhead areas, without chemicals dripping onto equipment, operators, or the  floor.

Corrdesa attended NACE 2019

Whilst in Nashville at Corrosion 2019, Corrdesa gave many demonstrations of Corrosion Djinn and provided new connections with free trials to try back in their own environment. It has never been easier to explore possible coating protection options for product designs. We are looking forward to receiving their feedback soon.

Attending NACE Corrosion 2019 was a great experience and gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our quick, accurate galvanic corrosion prediction tool – Corrosion DjinnTM. Our presentations were well attended and can be found on our resources page.

Galvanic Corrosion Protection: Those Old Galvanic Potential Tables Are Finally Being Replaced

The galvanic potential tables people have been using for years often give the wrong answer. Now the U.S. Navy is taking a new approach and updating MIL-STD-889, the galvanic corrosion standard, replacing galvanic charts and tables with corrosion rate calculations. What does this mean for industry?

Have a read of our white paper to find out more about the changes to MIL-STD-889. The paper can be accessed here.

The Simcenter conference was very interesting, providing a great opportunity to learn more about the present software tools and also the trends in future development. One key takeaway for Corrdesa was the presentation on ‘Design Manager’ – this is a very powerful tool allowing easy setup of many simulations to more thoroughly explore the design space. So now we have changed out engineering workflow to think in more of a stochastic framework of many simulations and ranges of parameters instead of deterministic simulations of one scenario after the other. This approach really leverages the power of our computing cluster and provides much more optimum solutions to our clients.

Alan’s corrosion simulation presentation was very well received  with many questions and follow-up meetings. Much of the  Siemens Simcenter community were unaware of the existence of the electrochemical modules within CCM+ and in particular the advances made in corrosion prediction. 

The presentation is available here showing how the ‘1D’ approach of Corrdesa Corrosion Djinn can be leveraged to assess corrosion risks in materials selection and then further refinement made in more complex designs with the use of CCM+ employing the Corrdesa electrochemical database
