CORROSION PERFORMANCE OF CONSTRUCTIONAL STEELS IN MARINE APPLICATIONS

Long-term corrosion data on various constructional steels under different exposure conditions are reviewed. Galvanic corrosion, stress-corrosion cracking, and corrosion fatigue are discussed with emphasis on means for minimizing these forms of attack. Cathodic protection, metal sheathing, concrete encasement, and organic and metallic coatings are methods to be considered for preventing corrosion in marine applications.
