After chain making, proof load testing is used to evaluate if the chains are mechanically qualified. However, proof load testing may bring elongation in the chain links that may affect the corrosion performance of mooring chains in seawater. The influence of deformation and microorganisms on the corrosion properties of chain steel in seawater...

Failures of mooring lines on floating production, storage and offloading systems (FPSOs) raise concern to the offshore industry. Localized corrosion of mooring chain is regarded as one of main failure mechanisms. The project of Localized Mooring Chain Corrosion (LMCC) is aiming at studying the mechanism of local corrosion on mooring chain steel...
