AN INTRODUCTION TO ANTI-FOULING AND OTHER PROPERTIES OF CUPRO-NICKEL ALLOYS IN SHIPBUILDING AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE ASPERIDA
The 16m ketch Asperida built by the Cammenga Jacht- en Scheepswerf, Wormeveer, Holland in 1967 was the first example of the use of cupronickel alloy in ship's hull construction. The Introduction to the paper traces the history of the vessel up to 1979, when she was discovered undergoing repair in North Carolina. An examination of the hull by Inco representatives showed it to be in excellent condition after 12 years' service which included sailing in the Caribbean and the Pacific. The paper then goes on to discuss the properties of 90/10 and 70/30 coppernickel alloys and the reasons for their use in the construction of ships' hulls. Order from BSRA as No. 54,798.
