University of Southampton – Materials testing helps conserve icon of British maritime history

Engineers at the University of Southampton are working with the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) to help find the best materials to ensure Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, is weatherproof and watertight for the next half century.
The University’s nC2 engineering consultancy has specially designed and is running a series of tests to assess the long-term performance of a range of paints, caulking and glues (plank sealants) and
metal fastenings.
