The purpose of this program was to determine the current state-of-the-art of corrosion of ferrous pipelines. This included corrosion mechanisms, frequency and causes of corrosion failure, corrosion mitigation, corrosion detection, and inspection of standards. Emphasis was placed on corrosion literature published between 1945 and July 1970. Only exceptional publications outside of this period were utilized. The program goal was achieved by three separate but interacting paths: (1) a literature survey, (2) a questionnaire, and (3) personal contacts.
