"As the only previous determinations of the chemical composition of the titanium coatings had been analyses of the average composition of the entire coating, the determination of the variation in chemical composition throughout the coating was suggested. From this information, it was proposed that a better insight might be gained as to the extent and mechanism of diffusion in the coatings. It was also hoped to correlate the results with concurrent work being done on the phases present in the titanium coatings. From this correlation, it might be possible to show which phases are responsible for the desirable properties of the coating and the minimum amount of titanium in the coating that is necessary to produce an acceptable coating. Finally, it was hoped that the results obtained would verify the accuracy of existing methods for measuring the diffusion coating thickness"--Statement of the problem, page 4.
