Abstract:

A study was made on the effects of alternating electrical currents on the prevention or attenuation of marine fouling. There was no correlation in the data obtained from the system in use at Power Plants Nos. 2 and 3, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, where fouling has been reduced, and from test units exposed at Port Hueneme, where fouling was little affected by impressed currents.
