THE EFFECT OF VELOCITY ON THE SEA WATER CORROSION BEHAVIOR OF HIGH PERFORMANCE SHIP MATERIALS

A program has been conducted in high velocity sea water to determine the general corrosion rates of high performance ship aluminum hull alloys and appendage materials, and to determine the galvanic corrosion rates of the hull alloys when coupled electrically to the appendage materials. This paper describes this program, including the materials selected for evaluation, the program test parameters, and the results achieved, with the corrosion rates for the materials evaluated also given.
