Offshore constructions are subjected to cyclic loading conditions. This situation is combined with the corrosive nature of the surrounding environment. It is of actual concern whether the combined effect is
more damaging or not than the superposition of each effect independently. This literature review first introduces the reader to corrosion fatigue. Thereafter a critical comparison of some typical lab-scale fatigue corrosion test setups is given. Special emphasis is devoted to the instrumentation of the setup. This is followed by a design criteria summary which will be used to design a new corrosion fatigue test set-up for evaluating the fatigue properties of steel components in sea water environment.
