CORROSION RESEARCH LABORATORIES—5: Battelle Memorial Institute, U.S.A.

Publication date: 1 September 1955


Battelle Memorial Institute, one of the pioneers in contract research, has been conducting an ever‐increasing volume of sponsored investigations for industry since 1929. In recent years, a substantial amount of Government research for American defence has been added to that supported by industry. It is natural that the Institute, whose first sponsored investigations were largely metallurgical in scope, should contract for corrosion research at an early date. The growth, the investigations, and the philosophy of the Corrosion Division will be discussed in this article. However, this subject is so closely aligned with the increase in size of the Institute as a whole, that a review will be given first of the origin and philosophy of the Battelle system of conducting research.
