    Abstract

    In the Institute of Metals Division Lecture of 1940, E. H. Dix, Jr.(1) discussed the acceleration of the rate of corrosion by high constant stresses. Experimental data obtained on this subject at the Aluminum Research Laboratories and a theory compatible with these facts were included in that lecture. The present paper contains data and ideas subsequently developed at the Aluminum Research Laboratories.
