Abstract:

The research consisted of an experimental determination of the effects of corrosion upon the recognition thresholds of symbols stamped into unprotected steel surfaces. The conclusions are reported. 1 even a small amount of surface corrosion is extremely detrimental to marking recognition 2 removal of corrosion product becomes a less effective means of improving recognition characteristics of symbols as the degree of corrosion increases and 3 viewing angle is relatively unimportant from the corrosion standpoint.
