Corrosion Science and Technology presents basic principles rigorously in a reader-friendly manner and guides readers in their practical application. It describes the characteristics of metals and alloys most often applied for corrosion-resistant service and discusses the relative merits of the various protective measures available and strategies for corrosion control. The book features corrosion control with economical use of resources and profiles selected industries where corrosion control is critical and considers how these industries address corrosion issues.
