Detection and discrimination of corrosion attack on ships

Objective

Due to disaster of oil ship a tremendous pollution of the maritime environment and the affected coast appears. This leads to damages for the Fauna and Flora with consequences for several decades, like the accident of Erika near to the French coast. The normal ship survey, which depends on time dependent testing periods with random testing points, shall be replaced by an integral corrosion detection system. During a successful performed SMT project the application of Acoustic Emission (AE) was proven and this application shall be transferred to the ship tanks. After establishing a database for corrosion detecting, based on a frequency domain pattern recognition system, the application of permanent installation as well as a king of spot testing in the harbour shall be checked. At the end this testing method shall be introduced in the normal survey program of the registration agencies and the European standardisation.
