The Authors explain why good preservation of a ship's steel structure can only be obtained by integrating the preservation requirement at the preplanning stage with the overall building procedures. The role played by the initial cleaning and protection of plates and sections is fully described, including the requirements of the shop primer. The damage to the initial protection during unit fabrication and the methods of remedying it are described in detail, together with the importance of completing all ancillary welding and burning at this stage by detailed planning. The further protection problems occurring during unit assembly are described, together with methods of dealing with them. The paper concludes with some thoughts on the organizational structure necessary to ensure good preservation using optimum specifications. Order from: BSRA as No. 47,000.
