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
