Project Seeks Data to Track, Predict Corrosion in Aircraft Parts

The Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow (LIFT) program initiated a fifth research program, this one dedicated to developing a database and computer models that will predict corrosion in aluminum alloys, in airplanes and other transport applications. LIFT is a public-private partnership launched in 2014 under the aegis of the U.S. Department of Defense to coordinate industrial and academic interests to develop and deploy manufacturing technologies for lightweight metal products.
