LOW FRICTION HULL COATINGS FOR ICEBREAKERS--PHASE III--TECHNICAL REPORT
Phase III is a continuation of the Low Friction Hull Coatings for Icebreakers program in which nonsolvented coatings gave the best protection for icebreaker hulls. This effort documents the reduction in resistance obtained, a laboratory study to determine the optimum application parameters, fouling characteristics and the cost benefit obtained from coating an icebreaker hull with the nonsolvented coatings. In addition, a model test program was run to determine the effect of a partial hull coating.
- This report documents follow-on efforts of the Low Friction Coatings for Icebreakers Project. Phase I report is CG-D-107-74. Phase II report is CG-D-32-76. Prepared for U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Coast Guard Office of Research and Development, Washington, D.C. 20590.
