On May 26, 2021, Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. was awarded a contract under a NAVAIR Phase II SBIR program to develop a performance informed additive friction stir deposition (AFSD) technology along with its processing and fatigue damage evaluation toolkit for the rapid repair of corroded metallic structures. Using the AFSD technique, a strong metallurgical bond between the deposited material and side wall can be established to resist the potential debonding. This project will develop one of the key enabling a new repair technology to quickly restore the structure’s previously un-corroded remaining useful life with an acceptable static strength capability.
