Abstract:

A deficiency was found in the procedure for the salt-spray test given in MIL-C-23050Ships, which is used to determine the weight loss suffered by metal structures, such as ballast tanks, from rusting. The procedure did not take into account the nonhomogeneity of material among the panels being tested. A modified method was developed, and the results obtained with this method were compared with those obtained using the original method. The modified method not only corrected the deficiency, but it also improved the precision of the test method significantly. Author
