Abstract : The Annapolis Detachment of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division (NSWCCD) was host to the '2nd Workshop on Quantitative Methods for Evaluation of Paint Coating Performance' on 1-3 November 1995. The workshop, co-sponsored by Mr. Ivan L. Caplan (NSWCCD) in conjunction with Dr. A. John Sedriks of the Office of Naval Research, was organized and chaired by Dr. John Murray of the Corrosion Branch (Code 613). Dr. Harvey Hack (Code 613) led the closing discussion session on 3 November. This report constitutes the Workshop Summary Report. Following the initiating general overview of the status of the Navy Paint systems, 23 presentations were made by internationally and nationally recognized experts covering the major types of non-destructive tests for coating systems, both electrochemical and visual assessment techniques. In addition to NSWCCD Annapolis, Philadelphia and White Oak personnel, approximately 40 people listened to the leading university, industrial research and instrument manufacturer personnel present and discuss the recent results using new research approaches, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), electro-chemical noise, dc and dc pulse approaches, as well as the improvements in enhanced visual imaging techniques. jg p56
