Title: Corrosion, microstructure, and metallography

Of the forty-one papers presented, nearly half of them deal with microstructural aspects of corrosion, corrosion control and corrosion failure analysis. They describe various analytical approaches for studying corrosion and for diagnosing corrosion failure mechanisms. Details include microstructural features of corrosion on a wide range of materials or coatings and in environments ranging from within the human body to outer space. Another series of papers handles microstructure-property relationships and contains reports on hydrogen embrittlement of AISI 316 stainless steel, shell and detail cracking in railroad rails, and the precipitation of martensitic Fe-Ni-W alloys. A third grouping looks at microstructure-fracture relationships. Coverage of advancements in metal-lographic techniques includes the use of microcomputers, applied techniques of inplace analysis, and use of the Tandem Van de Graff accelerator facility.
