CORROSION AND PROTECTION OF STEEL PILES IN A NATURAL SEAWATER ENVIRONMENT

This report describes the first eight years of a long term program in which twenty-three coating systems and five cathodic protection systems are evaluated on their ability to protect steel piles in offshore conditions. These systems are made up of nonmetallic coatings, metallic pigmented coatings, nonmetallic coatings on metal filled coatings, nonmetallic coatings on metallic coatings, metallic coatings, and cathodic protection on bare and coated piles. It includes a description of the annual on site electrochemical coating evaluation and a description of the final physical evaluation made on the piles after removal. The results of these electrochemical and physical evaluations are presented graphically and in tabular form.
