Abstract
Corrosion damage is recognized as a serious problem in naval operating environments, leading to significant cost penalties, reduced safety and unavailability of equipment. In order to manage corrosion control programs more effectively, quantitative information on the nature of corrosive attack is needed. Such information is a fundamental requirement for condition and preditive/prognostic based corrosion maintenance strategies. Numerous industrial corrosion measurement techniques are available, each with specific advantages and limitations. In order to obtain maximum information on complex corrosion problems, a multi-technique approach is advocated. The multi-technique corrosion measurement approach can often be applied to single corrosion sensor units, constructed of multiple sensing elements. Many of the commonly applied techniques provide semi-quantitative corrosion information only, a factor that is often overlooked. Corrosion sensors are a vital element of corrosion surveillance systems, utilized to generate information for effective decision making in corrosion control programs. These sensors have emerged as highly specialized devices for technically challenging field applications. TRUNCATED
