In addition to high mechanical loads certain components for the automotive industry are exposed to corrosive environments, especially during winter, when corrosion promoting deicers are essential to sustain road traffic. This work contributes to the evaluation of the corrosion fatigue performance of wrought and cast aluminium alloys. Aluminium alloys are of special interest because of the opportunity to reduce expenses for an additional corrosion protection and to support lightweight construction of vehicles. Components exposed to simultaneous mechanical and corrosive service loads as well as corrosion tests of different scale level (immersion and cabinet testing, long term outdoor exposure of components, usage on test carriers) were analysed to evaluate typical forms of corrosion. Based upon the prevailing damaging mechanism of material conditions with known differences in susceptibility to specific forms of corrosion, like intergranular corrosion or pitting, methods were derived to evolve service relevant types of corrosion during laboratory tests.
