AbstractThe development is described of a new physics-based life management framework that takes into account both cyclic and environmental effects and their interaction. The current design paradigms and their limitations in predicting the life of corroded components is reviewed. The processes employed to include different corrosion degradation modes (pitting, exfoliation) into the new methodology are discussed. Examples are provided that demonstrate the advantage of including corrosion effects (not just corrosion fatigue crack growth rate curves) into the sustainment phase of an aircraft.
