CORROSION-FATIGUE STRENGTH OF STEELS USED TO MANUFACTURE SHIP PROPELLER SHAFTS

KORROZIONNO-USTALOSTNAYA PROCHNOST STALEY, PRIMENYAYEMYKH DLYA IZGOTOVLENIYA SUDOVYKH GREBNYKH VALOV

Analysis of experience in the operation of large-tonnage seagoing ships in the transport and fishing fleet reveals that much of the destruction and failure of the propeller shaft is associated with breakdown in water insulation for the shaft and with the development of corrosion fatigue processes when seawater reaches the steel shaft. The results of the investigation of fatigue and corrosion-fatigue strength of steels used to manufacture propeller shafts for these ships are given. It is established that the advantages of higher tensile category steels cannot be realized under cyclic mode in a corrosive environment.
