Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 28: Materials for Marine Systems and Structures provides an integrated approach, utilizing the environmental information of the ocean scientists, materials science, and structural integrity principles as they apply to offshore structures and ships. The book discusses the materials and their performance in marine systems and structures; the marine environment; and marine befouling. The text also describes marine corrosion; corrosion control; metallic materials for marine structures; and concrete marine structures. Materials for mooring systems and fracture control for marine structures are also considered. Professional scientists and engineers, as well as graduate students in the fields of ocean and marine engineering and naval architecture and associated fields will find the book useful.
