Abstract:

The average speed of corrosion in the sea of the tested steels is almost identical. Consequently, alloying by small additions of Cr, Ni, Cu, and Mn does not increase corrosion resistance of the steel in the sea to a noticeable degree. Low-alloy steels differ from carbon by the fact that they corrode less evenly in the sea. This promotes a somewhat large loss of their mechanical properties by 5--8, as compared with Steel 3.
