A corrosion survey methodology is presented to obtain corrosion data from ships. The corrosion data will be used to develop a rational method for assessing corrosion margins. The project included a survey of ship operators for corrosion data to define data collection and analysis requirements to characterize the corrosion rates that affect structural integrity of ships. The techniques used to predict corrosion rates and assess the strength of corroded structure were also reviewed to determine data requirements. The methodology consists of a data collection procedure, with recommended instrumentation. Forms were developed for documenting the measurements. Finally, an outline of the database was developed that includes an Expert System interface for data input, analysis and retrieval.
