Materials in Marine Technology

Materials in Marine Technology covers the important aspects of metallurgy and materials engineering which must be taken into account when designing for marine environments. The purpose is to aid materials selection and the incorporation of materials data into the design, manufacture and inspection strategy. Recent advances in materials technology, including the use of new materials for marine applications Alloys, Polymers and Composites are examined in detail. The integrated approach is design oriented and is supported by recent case studies.
