PROTECTION OF MATERIALS IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT. OPPORTUNITY BRIEF NO. 20
Materials science research is essential to safe, economical offshore and coastal structures and ships. A collaborative presentation of the Sea Grant programs of Louisiana State University (LSU) and MIT, this Opportunity Brief discusses three aspects of LSU research in marine materials protection: longlasting antifouling marine coatings, their characterization and environmental impact; hydrogen embrittlement, including cathodic protection concentration of environmental hydrogen; and titantium-based metallic coatings. Also discussed are two LSU projects: remote sensing and interpretation of data with a TIROS satellite, and creative computer-aided ship design tools.
