For marine applications, composite materials offer many advantages over metallic structures, with respect to ease of fabrication of complex profiles or light weight for installation and maintenance. Nevertheless, material selection is critical. In the case of a composite material, the choice of reinforcement is important if stress corrosion is to be avoided, while resin chemistry must be optimized to limit matrix damage. Fiber/matrix interface properties are also critical when composites are immersed for long periods.
