The high stress region around weld joints accelerates corrosion and may induce non-uniform corrosion. In this study, the effect of loading on corrosion behavior of the steel in NaCl solution was investigated. The relationship between the corrosion rate and applied loading was deduced based on the electrochemical theory. Electrochemical experiments were carried out to investigate the interaction between loading and corrosion rate on Q235 steel. A butt weld joint of ship deck structure was selected as a case study. Time-dependent stress concentration factor of welded joint as a function of the corrosion deterioration was analyzed, and the iterative process of stress and corrosion degeneration of plate thickness was used to simulate the coupling effect based on results of the experiment. The hot spot stress approach was adopted to calculate the fatigue damage.
