A Complete, Up-to-Date Introduction to Corrosion of StainlessSteels and Metallurgical Factors This fully updated Second Editionof Corrosion of Stainless Steels covers the tremendous advancesmade with stainless steels in recent decades, includingapplications in many new areas--from marine technologies andoff-shore oil production to power plants and the kitchen sink. Thisbook offers unique insights into the corrosion mechanisms affectingstainless steels, details problem-avoidance strategies, and helpsidentify corrosion-resistant capabilities for these remarkablealloys Sponsored by the Electrochemical Society, Corrosion osStainless Steels
* Provides a comprehensive introduction to the selection,development, and production of all types of stainless steels
* Emphasizes how metallurgical factors affect corrosionresistance
* Examines the limitations of stainless steels within the contextof a discussion on higher alloys
* Takes an interdisciplinary approach that demonstrates thecombined effects of metallurgy, chemistry, and electrochemistry oncorrosion resistance
* Provides baseline knowledge and testing standards for stainlesssteels, and facilitates failure analysis for industrial purposes orlitigation related to equipment failure
This is a much-needed text for materials scientists, chemicalengineers, corrosion specialists, graduate students, and anyone whoneeds to be brought up to date on this subject.
