This MaterialEASE provides a brief introduction to the mechanism behind the destructive natural phenomenon of corrosion. The article also discusses the common forms of corrosion, including uniform corrosion, pitting, crevice corrosion, filiform corrosion, galvanic corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen-induced cracking, liquid metal embrittlement, corrosion fatigue, erosion-corrosion, impingement, corrosion due to cavitation, intergranular corrosion, dealloying, fretting corrosion, and high-temperature corrosion. Methods on how to combat these forms of corrosion are also described including material selection and design, protective coatings, cathodic and anodic protection, and corrosion inhibitors.

All Aircraft Survivability Journals published after 2014 were produced under the contract vehicle known as Survivability/Vulnerability Information Analysis Center (SURVIAC). The journal is now created by the Joint Aircraft Survivability Program (JASP).
