520    Composites are widely used in marine applications. There 
       is considerable experience of glass reinforced resins in 
       boats and ships but these are usually not highly loaded. 
       However, for new areas such as offshore and ocean energy 
       there is a need for highly loaded structures to survive 
       harsh conditions for 20 years or more. High performance 
       composites are therefore being proposed. This book 
       provides an overview of the state of the art in predicting
       the long term durability of composite marine structures. 
       The following points are covered: Modelling water 
       diffusion Damage induced by water Accelerated testing 
       Including durability in design In-service experience. This
       is essential reading for all those involved with 
       composites in the marine industry, from initial design and
       calculation through to manufacture and service 
       exploitation. It also provides information unavailable 
       elsewhere on the mechanisms involved in degradation and 
       how to take account of them. Ensuring long term durability
       is not only necessary for safety reasons, but will also 
       determine the economic viability of future marine 
       structures.
