PROPERTIES OF CAST ALLOYS FOR LARGE MARINE PROPELLERS. A STATE OF THE ART REPORT

This report considers the state-of-the-art in the measurement and application of the properties of cast alloys used for large marine propellers. In particular, problems encountered when comparing corrosion fatigue data from different sources are reviewed and conclusions are drawn. The effects of mean tensile stresses are considered in detail. Test variables such as solution composition, temperature, frequency and specimen size, type, soundness, and origin are considered. The results of an MPC study of the corrosion fatigue properties of manganese bronze, nickel aluminum bronze, manganese-nickel-aluminum bronze and CA-6NM are presented.
