Tech/Engineering / Spantbogen damage - aircraft parts
German term or phrase: IK
Für die Schädigung der Spante kann ein korrosiver Angriff (***IK***, Exfolation etc.) ausgeschlossen werden.
Die vereinbarten Maßnahmen sowohl in Berlin als auch beim Unterlieferanten stellen sicher, daß Wiederholschäden ausgeschlossen werden können.
Die eingeführten Maßnahmen werden durch XXX Anfang Juli im Rahmen eines Audit überprüft.

This text is about damage to Spantbogen from an aircraft (I presume). The only meaning I could find for IK that was remotely similar to this context was:

IK Inverse Kinematics (rule of physics)

However, I am not at all sure about that. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance!
