Adaptive Maintenance

What Does Adaptive Maintenance Mean?

Adaptive maintenance refers to the enforcement of changes in the monitoring, use or other operational details of a metallic structure or object to prevent corrosion from spreading from one part of the metal where it is already present to another.


Corrosionpedia Explains Adaptive Maintenance

Typically, adaptive maintenance involves upgrading corrosion monitoring software systems to adjust the parameters the software recognizes as corrosion-inducing properties. The better the software is at reading such properties, the better the degree of corrosion prevention in a given application.

Adaptive maintenance consists of changing, often self-regulating software that monitors changes in an external environment. The term environment in this context refers to the conditions that influence corrosion (such as moisture, chemicals, oxygen, etc.).
