Fatigue and corrosion fatigue measurements were carried out on five commercially available metals - four steels and an aluminum alloy - which are used as structural materials in mine shaft conveyances. In the corrosion fatigue measurements, drain waters collected in the shafts of three different Canadian mines were used as corrodents. The mine waters had been selected on the basis of their relatively large differences in acidity and/ or composition.
