An investigation was made on the effect of seawater, brine and palm oil on stressed and unstressed mild steel. The objective was to determine the changes in physical and mechanical properties of the mild steel specimens when immersed in the different media Three stressed and three unstressed mild steel specimens were used, the specimens were immersed in the three different media for six weeks after which their weights, tensile strength and hardness value were determined The results show that the weights and hardness value of the unstressed specimens in the three media after six weeks of immersion did not change. The weights of the stressed specimens did not change but there were slight differences in their hardness value after immersion for six weeks.
