Abstract : Object of investigation was to establish relative resistance to corrosion of chromium nickle alloys of type 18:8 with and without columbium, molybdenum, and titanium; information on locality exposure and shot-welding of surface treatments was to be obtained. Panels were cold-rolled and surface passivated in 20% nitric acid. They were exposed to tidewater and weather for three years. Endurance limit decreased rapidly in the first six months. Test results are given in tables and graphs.
