Comprehensive approach to scientific principles and methods that underlie the cause, detection, measurement and prevention of many metal corrosion problems engineering practices.
A revised and updated textbook (first edition, 1992) for introductory engineering courses at the senior/graduate level, or reference for researchers and practicing engineers. The emphasis is on the principles and methods leading to reasonable mitigation of the great majority of corrosion problems in engineering practice. An instructor's manual, available on request from the publisher, contains solutions to the exercises that conclude each chapter, and a set of multiple choice questions for further discussion or examination.
