Abstract:

Corrosion is a complex form of materials deterioration. This deterioration proceeds through chemical or electrochemical processes. Each environment in which materials are placed has associated with it various modes of corrosive attack which may or may not be consistent with each other. Operating in a sea water environment, materials can be subjected to several forms of corrosion the more common forms being galvanic corrosion, cavitation corrosion, direct attack, stress corrosion, crevice corrosion, fatigue corrosion, caustic embrittlement, dezincification and corrosion due to marine fouling.
