EXPERIENCE WITH TITANIUM STRUCTURES IN MARINE SERVICE

Properties are given for titanium used in corrosive environments, with description of cause and effects of biofouling, dissimilar metals, crevice corrosion, fatigue and design deficiencies. Test data includes information on: resistance in the effect of antifouling paint on the corrosion resistance of the base metal, compatibility of titanium in reference to galvanic series of metal alloys in flowing seawater, immunity of titanium from pitting corrosion in brine solutions, and fatigue crack growth rate under strain in seawater environment. Testing techniques described.
