Corrosion Control Science & Technology Program

The objective of this Office of Naval Research program is to develop corrosion-resistant alloys and coatings, corrosion control and prevention technologies, and processes to mitigate corrosion and its effects under sea water and marine environment.

The primary focus is to explore science-based understanding of corrosion damage evolution mechanisms, corrosion-informed materials concepts, and surface protection and modification sciences.

Specific areas of interest include:

  • Fundamental understanding of corrosion mechanisms and processes
  • Multi-scale corrosion phenomena models to predict corrosion behavior that enable corrosion-informed materials selection and design
  • Corrosion resistant materials
  • Environmentally-benign advanced marine coatings
  • Surface modification technologies
