Non-destructive visualisation of marine corrosion forms with X-ray imaging (COROXI).

X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) can visualise internal and external characteristics of an object in 3D in a non-destructive manner. To assess the potential of this technology for the inspection of the occurrence of corrosion on maritime structures, covered with non-metallic layers, such as coatings, macrofouling and calcium deposits, a series of lab experiments will be set up to create a set of reference XCT images linked to well-described corrosion processes. Validation will occur using a time series of metal coupons in S235 and 316L, exposed to marine conditions in the Port of Ostend.
