Abstract

Current research on USS Arizona is focused on a minimum-impact technique for calculating corrosion rate of the battleship’s steel hull by analysing physical and chemical properties of marine encrustation covering the exposed hull. An equation is derived that allows concretion thickness, density, and total iron content to be used to calculate corrosion rate of steel hull plate.
