Localized corrosion under biofouling
A 1019 steel, 6061-T6 aluminum and types 304, 316, 430, and 446 stainless steel were immersed for three years in a seawater test site near Galveston, Texas. Data are reported for both uniform and pitting corrosion rates of these alloys. For all of the alloys except the steel, the majority of the pits were found close to the barnacle attachment sites.
