IN order to make available to industry generally the means for testing materials and products under various climatic conditions, particularly in tropical conditions conducive to corrosion, the Dutch research organisation Centrale Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek (T.N.O.)—Central Organisation for Applied Physical Research—has recently founded an institute at Rijswijk (Z.H.), near Delft, known as Klimaat‐kamers T.N.O., which incorporates test chambers for simulating climatic conditions to be found in various parts of the world. Should sufficient interest be forthcoming from industry it is further proposed to enlarge the institute to include other facilities such as test installations for observing the effect of salt spray, dust storms and low temperatures.
