Galvanic corrosion is a serious issue for structures subjected to marine environments. Researchers have studied the effects of parameters such as area, equilibrium potential, environment, etc. on galvanic corrosion; however, the effect of mechanical load has not been thoroughly analyzed. Typically, a metallic joint of dissimilar metals is subjected to mechanical loading and, consequently, strain. In order to evaluate the effect of tensile strain, we have compared the rate of corrosion between the unstrained and strained conditions for galvanic couples. The materials tested are Al7075 plate with a CRES 316 or a Ti-6Al-4V bolt. Initially, the couples are compared using corrosion current and Tafel parameters. Later, they are subjected to a corrosive environment, and the depth profile is observed using optical profilometry. Results show that plastic deformation increases the corrosion rate (measured by the change in thickness for a set time); whereas, elastic deformation does not affect the corrosion process.
