Four types of drive chains two roller chains and two leaf chains were evaluated for use in sea water environment. The chain pins were tested in static three-point bend tests. Sections of the chains were cyclicly loaded to failure after being sustained under static loading for two or four weeks in sea water. The strongest 3 x 4 leaf chain also provided the longest life at the chosen cyclic loads. Author
