CORROSION RATES OF URANIUM ALLOYED STEEL IN MARINE HYDROSPACE
Final rept. Oct 1963-Jun 1967
NAVAL CIVIL ENGINEERING LAB PORT HUENEME CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Corrosion rates in the 3 hydrospace environments were primarily controlled by the dissolved oxygen concentrations and to a lesser extent by temperature. Segregation of uranium in the steels, which possibly could have occurred during production, could not be detected. Profuse micro-pitting over the surface of the uranium alloyed stainless steel was attributed to the uranium. Corrosion rates of steel in deep ocean were low.
