As a method of joining with economic, performance-related and environmental advantages over traditional welding in some applications, adhesive bonding of joints in the marine environment is increasingly gaining popularity. Adhesives in marine engineering provides an invaluable overview of the design and use of adhesively-bonded joints in this challenging environment.
After an introduction to the use of adhesives in marine and offshore engineering, part one focuses on adhesive solution design and analysis. The process of selecting adhesives for marine environments is explored, followed by chapters discussing the specific design of adhesively-bonded joints for ship applications and wind turbines. Predicting the failure of bonded structural joints in marine engineering is also considered. Part two reviews testing the mechanical, thermal and chemical properties of adhesives for marine environments together with the moisture resistance and durability of adhesives for marine environments.
With its distinguished editor and international team of expert contributors, Adhesives in marine engineering is an essential guide for all those involved in the design, production and maintenance of bonded structures in the marine environment, as well as proving a key source for academic researchers in the field.
