Design of the Digital Simulation System for Corrosion Damage on Marine Steel Structures
Corrosion of ocean engineering steel structures leads huge economic loses each year. To decrease corrosive loses and guarantee the safety of ocean steel structures, on the basis of Database on Corrosion of Ocean Engineering Materials and Structures (DCOEMS), the overall architecture of a digital simulation system is proposed based on the collection of existing models of corrosion damage on marine steel structures. Typical models involving uniform corrosion, pitting corrosion, stress corrosion and corrosion fatigue are sorted out and integrated in the simulation system which makes a thorough analysis for calculation and principle of professional module. The effective integration of corrosion damage, structural simulation and visualization is implemented successfully. It achieves the applications of the digital simulation. In the case of prediction and evaluation, it lays a good foundation for the development of the simulation system with independent intellectual property rights.
