Abstract : Ivestigation of metals which might serve as ground rods is reported. Thirty-one rods of 8 different metal systems were tested. The metal systems were mild steel, galvanized steel, Ni-Resist, Type 302 stainless steel, copper clad steel, high-purity zinc, Az31B magnesium alloy, and No. 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Single rods of mild steel were coupled to single rods of the other 7 metal systems; in addition, 2 mild steel rods were coupled to single rods of copper-clad steel, magnesium, and zinc, to provide the different anode-to- cathode area ratios. Results are not included in this report.
