Conference paper


The splash and tidal zones of steel structures constructed in coastal areas are protected against corrosion through the application of thick film coverings and/or linings. However, the deterioration of organic covering materials is severe in splash zones due to the effects of the sun rays and the repeated wetting and drying to which they are exposed, and the protective coverings on the tidal zones are very easily damaged by littoral drift, the effects of waves, and organic organisms which attach themselves to the piles. Despite their relative susceptibility to damage, the repair of these coverings still often remain a difficult task.
