Description

Corrosion is a huge issue for materials, mechanical, civil and petrochemical engineers. With comprehensive coverage of the principles of corrosion engineering, this book is a one-stop text and reference for students and practicing corrosion engineers. Highly illustrated, with worked examples and definitions, it covers basic corrosion principles, and more advanced information for postgraduate students and professionals. Basic principles of electrochemistry and chemical thermodynamics are incorporated to make the book accessible for students and engineers who do not have prior knowledge of this area. Each form of corrosion covered in the book has a definition, description, mechanism, examples and preventative methods. Case histories of failure are cited for each form. End of chapter questions are accompanied by an online solutions manual.

Readership

Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students on corrosion engineering courses, usually studied as part of mechanical, materials, and chemical engineering degrees; Engineers working in process, chemical petroleum and petrochemical industries

Quotes and reviews

"During my 25 years experience in the field, both as a teacher and researcher, it is commonly acknowledged that a comprehensive text for corrosion engineering is lacking. The material supplied indicates the author is fully addressing this problem."
- Dr. Paulette, National Research Council, Washington, USA
