Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of liquid ethylene oxide on 61S Aluminum Alloy which had been welded and heat treated to the T-6 condition. It was desired to ascertain if corrosion occurred and whether such corrosion applied to the entire assembly, or to the welded portion or both. It was also desired to determine whether the assembly acted as a catalyst to cause polymerization of the ethylene oxide.
