Galvanic Corrosion ANSYS® Module

MSI’s Galvanic Corrosion ANSYS® Module is a software module that interfaces with computer aided design (CAD) models and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) models to output galvanic corrosion couples, alert the design engineer of potential corrosion problems, and enable design iterations to avoid corrosion problems. For large assemblies made up of many drawings, such as an automated weapons system, this can save significant time and reduce the likelihood of failing to identify dissimilar metals in contact. Furthermore, the finite element analysis (FEA) based technique provides calculation of galvanic corrosion rates of contacting bodies immersed in an electrolyte.
