In the first of a two-part article, the authors describe a funded project on performance testing of corrosion protection of wind energy mills, particularly the mill's steel tower and parts of the mill foundation. The article examines stressors of these structures (particularly corrosive stress) and details the selection of corrosion protection systems and the text procedures developed to evaluate them....
