The conjoint mechanical-chemical destruction of metals by accelerated cavitation in a magnetostriction apparatus indicates relative effects of the metal properties (hardness, metallurgical structure, corrosion-fatigue limit) and of the liquid characteristics (temperature, pressure, wettability) which have been confirmed by field experience in hydraulic turbines and in water-cooled diesel cylinder liners.
