SOME RECENT TECHNIQUES FOR THE STUDY OF THE BEHAVIOR OF OCEAN ENGINEERING MATERIALS

Cavitation erosion, droplet erosion, corrosion, and corrosion fatigue are some of the important materials problems associated with ocean engineering systems. Recent techniques used to study these problems are described. They include a vibratory cavitation apparatus, a rotating foil apparatus, a high velocity cavitating water jet apparatus, a coatings evaluation loop, a liquid impact erosion apparatus, a high frequency fatigue device, and a high velocity corrosion apparatus. Some of the salient results are also presented. These techniques have great protential for studying the mechanisms of various materials problems and in devising protective methods resulting in an economic utilization of available materials in ocean engineering applications.
