Abstract : The report contains data on a wide variety of materials such as brasses, bronzes, copper-nickel alloys, nickel base alloys, wrought and cast austenitic stainless steels, austenitic stainless steel weld metals, and austenitic manganese steels. Tabulations include chemical composition, mechanical properties, normal permeability, coercive force and resistivity data for the materials tested. The permeability and coercive force measurements were performed in strong magnetic field (100-200 oersteds). The effect of composition and cold deformation on the magnetic properties of the various materials is discussed and considerable attention is focused on the austenitic stainless steels. In addition to general conclusions, the report contains generalizations as to the expected magnetic behavior of the various types of materials. (Author)
