Paper Title:
Durability of Aluminum Alloy/Rubber Joints in Corrosive Environment
  Abstract

In automobiles, a suspension bush, a set of aluminum parts connected to each other via rubber, is mounted into the suspension members to link the body to the wheels, and realizes hard and soft mounts contributing both to the stabilization during high speed driving and to absorbing the shock from the road. However, decohesion of the aluminum part from the rubber occurs occasionally, arising from the interface corrosion of aluminum, which deteriorates the performance of the vehicle directly. In this study, effects of alloy composition and processing route on this kind of corrosion will be investigated. Also, development of a new corrosion test that shortens the time for the test will be attempted.
