This study deals with the effect of heat treatment of steel with 0.17% C at three different temperatures selected through metallographic analysis viz. untreated, 873, 1073 and 1223K on the corrosion behavior in aggressive tropical marine environment. Accelerated salt spray test has also been conducted to compare the actual field data. The corrosion rates are in tune with the meteorological data collected. The heat treatment process is graded according to the performance in combating corrosion. Results are discussed in the light of micro structure levels of pollutants and other meteorological data
