COATINGS - THE PROMISE AND THE CHALLENGE FOR ENHANCED NAVAL SHIP PERFORMANCE

This study discusses the rationale and the Navy approach to obtain smooth hull coatings systems for reducing ship drag. It reviews some of the more critical coatings developments augmented in some cases by underwater hull maintenance techniques which when combined into a systems approach can offer substantial gains in ship performance enhancement. Predictions are given for trends in coatings development for the future.
