The paper offers a thorough discussion of the performance characteristics of conventional and advanced steels available for maritime structures. The authors outline their perspectives as to the current state of materials technology with specific reference to steel and weldment metallurgical characteristics, corrosion susceptibility, fracture performance, load rate effects and structural fatigue. Identification is made of several problem areas that must yet be solved.
