Virtual design of materials would allow the sorting and selection of the material designs with the highest probability of fulfilling their function. This has the potential to dramatical cut the time for materials development, and thus focus material development. It requires the integration of models from the molecular to engineering scale. This paper reports on this platform and the actual models across the scales. The models include: Molecular scale models defining corrosion inhibhor/surface interactions and inhibitor movement, Models of pit initiation and propagation , microclimate models defining conditions in and on the exterior of an aircraft and damage accumulation models that keep track of the advance of damage . The system can estimate the life of a range of primers with different inhibitors for different flight patterns.
