Electro-chemo-mechanical Modelling of Corrosion induced Material Damage



In recent years, corrosion and damage related materials modelling approaches have achieved predictive capabilities, enabling engineers to consider component service-life aspects during virtual design phase. Independent of the engineering purpose (civil, biomedical, aviation and transport) structural failure due to corrosion is a worst case scenario. Therefore, computational prediction of integrity loss due to corrosion processes induced damage via advanced simulation action would be an efficient tool for component (material) design and advanced health monitoring. The talk addresses the lack of linked/coupled predictive models capable to handle corrosion processes and its relation to mechanical property changes on different scales. We show fully coupling of existing models. Simulations of defined load scenarios (e.g. tensile plus corrosive) will be performed.
