Corrosion: Understanding the Basics B-ASM-006

This book presents a practical "how to" approach to understanding and solving the problems of corrosion of structural materials. Although it is written mainly for those having a limited technical background in corrosion, it also provides more experienced engineers with a useful overview of the principles of corrosion and can be used as a general guide for developing a corrosion-control program.

Topics covered include:

  • identification of the various forms of corrosion
  • critical factors leading to a specific type of corrosion
  • necessary preventive steps to eliminate or reduce corrosion damage
  • protective-coating selection
  • corrosion characteristics of common structural materials
  • corrosion-testing programs
  • and failure-analysis procedures
