The effect of flow velocity and chemical composition of Arab gulf sea water on the corrosion behavior of three different types of steel (DNV/EH40, AB/FH32 and ABS DQ47) used in building of marine ship hull structures investigated by using electrochemical Potentiostatic test method was. The results indicate that the general corrosion rate under flow condition is larger than that obtained under static case. Increasing the velocity of sea water leads to increase the corrosion rates for certain limit and then began to decrease. NV/EH40 steel exhibited a significantly lower values of corrosion rate, ABS DQ47 steel has larger values and AB/FH32 marine steel plates has moderate values.
