This Congress provided a forum for the presentation of theoretical and applied information on the technology affecting the corrosion and fouling of materials in the sea. The eighty papers cover all phases of design, development, applied engineering, and economics which may influence the construction and operation of ships and underwater installations. They will be of interest to specialists in hull design and performance, marine paints and protective coatings, metallurgists, biologists, microbiologists, and corrosion engineers. The papers cover such topics as corrosion and fouling of ships' hulls and underwater steel structures, protective coatings and cathodic protection, concrete and reinforced concrete structures, corrosion behavior of metal alloys, electrochemical protection, cavitation erosion, and stress corrosion cracking. A section on biological influences features papers dealing with bacterial and fungal adhesion, settlement by cirrepeds and enteromorphs, activities of wood boring organisms, and control and testing procedures. The authors of all the papers in the volume are recognized experts in their respective fields.
