Forms of Corrosion - Recognition and Prevention, 2nd Edition

Product Number: 37626-POD
ISBN: 978-1-57590-354-5
Author: Dale McIntyre

This is a print-on-demand (POD) book that will be produced just for you in 2-5 days after your order. It should arrive at your door in about one to two weeks. However, due to supply chain and logistic challenges currently affecting the industry, it may take longer. Allow three weeks for international orders.

The Second Edition of this classic reference book adds updated commentary and many new case studies. Mechanisms and numerous scenarios illustrate general, localized and galvanic corrosion, environmental cracking, erosion-corrosion, cavitation, fretting, intergranular attack, dealloying, and high-temperature corrosion.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the eight forms of corrosion and illustrate the forms’ macro- and microappearances as they occur in conventional engineering metals and alloys. Diagrams are occasionally employed to illustrate mechanisms, but photographs and photomicrographs are employed whenever possible, together with case histories, to aid understanding of the situations discussed and the means taken to ameliorate them.

This book presents detailed corrosion mechanisms and case histories of a wide variety of corrosion problems from chemical plants, oil production and refining, utilities, pipelines, transport by air, land, and sea, electronics, and the preservation of historical artifacts. The uses of advanced analytical techniques such as electron microscopy, metallography, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, Aüger spectroscopy and electrochemical techniques are presented to illustrate their utility in corrosion failure investigations.
