AbstractRecords of the appearance of the moisture on specimens of various metals exposed outdoors to rain or dew show that the moisture may involve a wide size range of water droplets of films and that the conditions are transient. Thus no single state represents the physical character of the moisture on the surface of an exposed metal specimen during any period of wetness. The average temperature of the specimens during the time of wetness was less than 1F below the air temperature. Thickness had a slight effect on the average temperature of clean specimens. This effect was cancelled when the surface was covered with corrosion products.
