This contribution to the symposium cannot hope to be a compendium of information on the numerous high-chromium alloys which are resistant to heat and corrosion. Fortunately two up-to-date volumes, one published in England and one in America, are available. Likewise the task is considerably simplified by the fact that, of all the applications in industry, probably less than 10 per cent of them involve the adaptation of design to material in order to supply sufficient strength. In practically all stainless steels coming before the eyes of the ordinary citizen the stresses are purely nominal. Applications of this nature are beyond the scope of this symposium and need not be referred to in detail, valuable and interesting though they may be.
