Study of the behavior of materials for automotive components in combustible environments


This project will investigate the corrosive behavior of the alloys Al-Si-X (X=Cu, Mg, Fe), produced by spray conformation and from carbon steel in the presence of gasoline fuel, alcohol fuel and pure alcohol, the latter with additions of low levels of possible contaminants of fuel alcohol. For comparative effect, methanol and ethanol will be used as the pure alcohols. The corrosive behavior will be studied by means of loss of mass trials and electrochemical trials, with emphasis on the electrochemical impedance trial. (AU)
