Corrosion of DSRV Materials in Sea Water - 12 Months Natural Exposure and 98 Cycles in Pressure Vessels
NAVAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LAB PORT HUENEME CA
In order to evaluate specific corrosion problems involved in the design of the DSRV Deep Submergence Rescue Vessel, a corrosion test program was initiated to determine 1 the effects of galvanic and crevice corrosion on selected combinations of metals, and 2 the efficacy of selected paint coatings, sealing compounds and galvanic anodes for mitigating corrosion, crevice corrosion and galvanic corrosion. Composite specimens representative of proposed DSRV construction materials and methods were exposed for 370 days at mean tide level in sea water and to cyclic exposure to pressurized sea water. This report presents an evaluation of these composite specimens after exposure.
