The definitive volume on corrosion—now expanded and completely updated

Continuing a legacy that began with the classic 1948 edition comes this long-awaited, fully revised Third Edition of the authoritative guide on corrosion. A thorough and timely compilation, Uhlig's Corrosion Handbook, Third Edition explores, in eighty-eight chapters, a multitude of subjects important to understanding the methods for controlling the degradation of materials. It includes updates of all information along with many new chapters including corrosion monitoring; principles of accelerated corrosion testing; failure analysis; composite materials; diagnosing, measuring, and monitoring microbiologically influenced corrosion; and high-temperature oxidation of metals and alloys. In addition, this new Third Edition:

  • Gives a solid summary of the scientific background of all the types of corrosion in a comprehensive and well-organized way
  • Includes new coverage of many important corrosion topics, including nuclear waste containment, CO2 corrosion of steel, ethanol-induced stress corrosion cracking, dealloying, shape memory alloys, nanocrystals, and corrosion of electronics
  • Features information on the standards for corrosion testing, microbiological corrosion, and electrochemical noise
  • Presents both scientific and practical approaches, making it extremely useful for all materials science professionals

Valuable contributions from internationally renowned authors once again help distinguish Uhlig's Corrosion Handbook as a leading resource in the field as each page builds on the book's longstanding reputation as an indispensable companion for engineers, scientists, students, and others concerned with the use of materials in applications where integrity, reliability, and resistance to corrosion are critical.
