    Abstract

    The prime purpose of the Symposium on Evaluation Tests for Stainless Steels, held under the auspices of subcommittee IV of Committee A-10 on Iron-Chromium, Iron-Chromium-Nickel and Related Alloys was to permit a critical appraisal of some of the testing methods that were in regular use for evaluating certain corrosion-resistant characteristics of these alloys. Mr. H. L. Maxwell of the duPont Company served as cochairman of the Symposium with the author of this introductory summary. Special attention was focussed on two features: first, the significance of results of the laboratory evaluation tests with relation to practical experience under diverse service conditions and, second, the effects on behavior of the alloys in test and in use of lowering carbon contents to extremely low limits.
