MATERIALS OTHER THAN STEEL
This Report deals with the use of several materials other than steel which are or might become of importance in the construction of marine structures. Fibre-reinforced plastics materials are dealt with in a less comprehensive manner. The development of aluminum alloys is slow, and the current situation is described. For ship structures, titanium is a new material and some development of its application is foreseen. The use of copper and copper-nickel clad steels is closely evaluated from the viewpoint of anti-fouling and some detailed examples are quoted. The growth of interest in reinforced concrete as a shipbuilding material is given special attention, and an appendix dealing with its use in the U.S.S.R. shipbuilding industry is included.
