    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Includes information in tabular form on effect of 5 different environments. Provides guidance to designers, to help them avoid situations in which corrosion may arise from the interaction of different metals and alloys at bimetallic contacts. Does not deal with other environments, such as those encountered in chemical engineering. For further information on the behaviour of particular alloys, reference should be made to the appropriate development or in the case of defence stores, further information may be obtained from the appropriate branch of the Ministry of Defence, trade association, manufacturer or supplier.
