CORROSION-FATIGUE OF METALS AS AFFECTED BY qjJEMJCAL COMPOSITION, HEAT TREATMENT AND COLD WORKING
McAdam Jr. ^"
The author briefly gives the results of a previous M" investigation of corrosion-fatigue of metals and then sets forth the materials, machines and specimens used': in further investigation of this subject. The chemical" composition of the steels used is tabulated and the stress-cycle graph representing steels tested in air and in a water stream are shown. The writer describes and illustrates the corrosion-fatigue spots and is of the opinion that transverse cracks passing through, non-metallic inclusions usually surrounded by oxide coating are the origins of corrosion-fatigue failure. For the investigation, the results of which are given in this paper, corrosion-fatigue tests and ordinary endurance, tests were made in a series of carbon steels ranging from 0.033 to 1.09 per cent carbon.
The writer sets forth his findings in experiments with carbon steels, nickel steels, high chromium steels and chromium-nickel steels and gives the effect of chemical composition and physical properties of corrosion-fatigue.
The author is of the opinion that corrosion-fatigue depends on two factors—corrosion intensity and, a stress range and that the corrosion-fatigue limit depends on a strength factor as well as on corrosion-resistance.
