Table of Contents

Part 1 Overview on copper and aluminium alloys: Corrosion behaviour of non-ferrous alloys in sea water in Polish marine industry; Erosion-corrosion interactions of copper and aluminium based alloys. Part 2 Copper alloys: Copper and copper-nickel-alloys - an overview; Experience with the use of copper alloys in seawater systems on the Norwegian Continental Shelf; CuNi 90/10: How to avoid typical failures of seawater tubing systems and marine biofouling on structures; 70/30 Copper-nickel seawater piping systems use of descaling agents and their effects on corrosion properties. Part 3 Aluminium bronzes: Long-term and accelerated corrosion testing methods for cast nickel aluminium bronzes in seawater; Galvanic corrosion of nickel-aluminium bronze coupled to titanium or Cu-15Ni alloy in brackish seawater. Part 4 Aluminium alloys: Corrosion and protection of aluminium alloys in seawater. Part 5 Aluminium based anode material: Electrochemical of the performance of new aluminium alloys as sacrificial anodes; Low voltage aluminium anodes optimization of the insert-anode bond; Improvement of the performance of al-zn-in anode in seawater by control of casting parameters and alloying elements.


Copper and aluminium alloys are widely used in marine engineering in areas such as pipelines, storage tanks, ships’ hulls and cladding for offshore structures. This important book reviews key factors affecting the corrosion and service life of these materials in the marine environment. The book is divided into five parts, with part one reviewing key aspects of the corrosion behaviour of both these alloys. Part two discusses the use of copper and copper-nickel alloys in seawater, whilst Parts 3 and 4 cover aluminium bronzes and alloys. The final section of the book covers the use of aluminium-based materials as anodes for the cathodic protection of marine structures.

Corrosion behaviour and protection of copper and aluminium alloys in seawater is an important reference for marine engineers concerned with the corrosion and service life of these materials.
