    Abstract

    A laboratory test method for accelerated atmospheric corrosion testing has been developed. Copper alloys were the main subject of testing, and the principal atmospheric simulation was urban-industrial. The test method has been very useful in ranking experimental copper alloys relative to commercial alloys and is believed to be adaptable to other alloy systems and environments. Representative reproducible oxide films can be generated for film study work and kinetics of film formation can be followed easily.
