THE STUDY OF HULL PART CORROSION OF FUKAE-MARU (II & III)

The training ship FUKAE MARU II was in service for 20 years. Based on a measured thickness of 123 points, her hull and house were maintained in as good a condition as at the ship's launching. To help study corrosion trends throughout the life of the ship's successor, the FUKAE MARU III, twenty-six test pieces have been bolted onto her hull at 13 points. Four are bare plates, four are coated with just an anticorrosion paint, nine are covered with both anticorrosion and finishing paints, and nine are coated with tar epoxy. Weight measurements are to be taken annually and the coatings inspected to study corrosion rates and paint ageing. Additional means to be used in studying these factors are examinations of hull surface roughness and a subsea robot equipped with a television camera.
