Description

The SAW corrosion sensor has many potential applications in both mechanical and electrical systems. For example, it could be used to monitor the corrosion of electrical contacts found in power systems. An early detection device would allow for preventive actions in order to avoid the high cost of down time or equipment damage that can result from electrical failures. The SAW sensor could also be used in mechanical systems, such as aircrafts, automobiles and spacecraft to continuously monitor the corrosive activity and determine when structural elements may need to be replaced.
