Corrosion Damage Research of Shot Peening Aluminum Alloy
The pre-corrosion damage tests of LC4 aluminum alloy with the shot peening surface treatment and un-shot peening surface treatment are performed under two different time levels: 12h and 24h. Based on the observation of the corrosion morphology of aluminum alloy, the corrosion damage mechanism of shot peening aluminum alloy can be divided into three stages: intergranular corrosion occurs first, and then denudation generates, at last pitting corrosion occurs as denudation depth reaches a certain degree. For shot peening aluminum alloy, the denudation depth, mass loss and the total depth of corrosion damage are used to represent the corrosion characteristics. With the corrosion time increase, the three parameters all increase correspondingly.
