INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR OF MARITIME STRUCTURES EXPOSED TO MATERIAL DEGRADATION CAUSED BY A SALT WATER ENVIRONMENT

The purpose of this report is to review and collect information regarding methods for the inspection, maintenance and repair of maritime structures subject to salt water degradation, and to evaluate the most appropriate and cost-effective methods. Structural materials investigated include steel, timber, concrete, stone and masonry. The report is intended to cover near-shore structures such as wharves, piers, jetties and breakwaters, but is in some instances also relevant for offshore structures, port buildings and cranes. An additional main goal of the report is to establish a bibliography in which the reader can find what information exists concerning his problem and where to obtain it. The report also briefly discusses the principle of material degradation in a salt water environment, and the state-of-the-art of present inspection methods, maintenance procedures and repair methods.
