A Complete, Up-to-Date Introduction to Corrosion of Stainless Steels and Metallurgical Factors This fully updated Second Edition of Corrosion of Stainless Steels covers the tremendous advances made with stainless steels in recent decades, including applications in many new areas--from marine technologies and off-shore oil production to power plants and the kitchen sink. This book offers unique insights into the corrosion mechanisms affecting stainless steels, details problem-avoidance strategies, and helps identify corrosion-resistant capabilities for these remarkable alloys Sponsored by the Electrochemical Society, Corrosion os Stainless Steels
* Provides a comprehensive introduction to the selection, development, and production of all types of stainless steels
* Emphasizes how metallurgical factors affect corrosion resistance
* Examines the limitations of stainless steels within the context of a discussion on higher alloys
* Takes an interdisciplinary approach that demonstrates the combined effects of metallurgy, chemistry, and electrochemistry on corrosion resistance
* Provides baseline knowledge and testing standards for stainless steels, and facilitates failure analysis for industrial purposes or litigation related to equipment failure
This is a much-needed text for materials scientists, chemical engineers, corrosion specialists, graduate students, and anyone who needs to be brought up to date on this subject.
