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.

Alan Rose will be presenting "Corrosion Prediction and Testing for Aerospace and Defense" alongside representatives from Southwest Research, NAVAIR and Boeing at NACE Corrosion 2019

Alan will be presenting “Corrosion Prediction and Testing for Aerospace and Defense” on March 26 at NACE 2019 which is taking place in Nashville, Tennessee. Corrdesa will also have a booth at NACE so come and see us in Booth #2648!


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


We would like to welcome Dr Julio Mendez to our team as a CFD engineer!
