THE EFFECTS OF OCEAN BIOLOGY ON STRUCTURE DURABILITY AND MAINTENANCE COSTS

The main part of this paper describes how organic life influences corrosion and corrosion protection schemes in connection with large steel structures, cooling water systems, reinforced concrete structures and pipelines. Recent results from corrosion and cathodic protection tests in the Arctic serve to show the corrosion rates to be expected in the absence of fouling. Other work at the Danish Corrosion Centre has shown that organic fouling will also have a strong influence on the behaviour of the reinforcing steel in concrete. Order from BSRA as No. 49,177.
