The Application of Corrosion Principles to Engineering Design 770292
To minimize corrosion of a multi-metal assembly, it is necessary to understand the basic corrosion processes that produce certain types of corrosion and recognize the factors that affect the rate of corrosion. Once this is understood, the information is applied to all phases of design engineering, including materials selection, methods of prevention, and physical design. The final step must be the determination of the feasibility of the proposed engineering design. This discussion deals with each of these specific areas that make up the total design.
