    Laboratory corrosion work may be divided into theoretical studies and rate tests, and with such a division the conclusion is drawn that a certain amount of standardization or uniformity of procedure is possible in rate testing but is not applicable to theoretical studies. A table is given of actual procedure by modern authors in controlling or describing various factors which affect corrosion rates. This table shows a trend toward better control but also that there is room for much more improvement. Factors capable of control are: temperature, aeration, velocity, and others in special cases. The recommendation is made not to adopt any particular test but to set up reasonable control of factors known to affect corrosion rates.
