MEP Series: Volume 2 Part 11: Corrosion for Marine and Offshore Engineers

New edition coming July 2020


The subject of Marine Corrosion covers a wide field and requires a specialised knowledge of several disciplines including chemistry, metallurgy and engineering. In this text it is hoped to provide the Marine Engineer with a theoretical knowledge of corrosion, corrosion properties of metals and alloys, methods of protection, and design considerations to apply corrosion preventative measures in particular situations of problems in machinery and installations. There are however, machinery items such as boilers which, owing to their mode of operation, have specific corrosion problems and are consequently mentioned separately in the text.
