Abstract : Metallurgical examination, including Brinell hardness surveys, fracture tests for steel soundness and fibre was conducted on each of the fourteen armor plates. Microscopic and macroscopic examinations and chemical analyses were made of selected samples. All the samples except four were satisfactory with respect to steel soundness. Thirteen of the samples responded to heat treatment satisfactorily as revealed by the fibruous manner in which they fractured.
