"STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Previous work done at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy on the deposition of titanium upon various metals, especially iron and steel, bas shown that titanium can be deposited upon ingot iron and. low carbon steels with comparitive ease. Difficulty was encountered in attempts to deposit titanium upon steels of higher carbon content and upon cast irons.
For this reason, it was decided to investigate more thoroughly the relationship between the carbon content of various steels and the quality of titanium coatings deposited on these steels. Once this relationship had been established, a suitable theoretical explanation was evolved to account for the experimental results. Various methods were then considered to circumvent the limitations imposed by the carbon content as shown by the experimental results.
If satisfactory coatings of titanium could not be obtained on steels above a certain carbon content, serious limitations would be imposed upon the industrial application in which coated steel articles above a certain carbon content could be put to use. The corrosion resistance of steel shapes could be increased by coating with titanium due to the well known corrosion resistance of elemental titanium, and the usefulness of such shapes would be increased"--Introduction, page 1.
