It is possible to design, construct, and perform experiments with a modular corrosion loop allowing a detailed investigation of corrosion processes. The instrument described in this paper was aimed at validating the experimental concept via testing a material that is susceptible to erosion-corrosion.
NEW EDITION: The Second Edition of this classic handbook combines Volumes 1 and 2 of the First Edition into a single volume, adding updated commentary and many new case histories. Mechanisms and numerous case histories illustrate general, localized and galvanic corrosion, environmental cracking, erosion-corrosion, cavitation, fretting, intergranular attack, dealloying, and high-temperature corrosion.
This book presents detailed corrosion mechanisms and case histories of a wide variety of corrosion problems from chemical plants, oil production and refining, utilities, pipelines, transport by air, land, and sea, electronics, and the preservation of historical artifacts. The uses of advanced analytical techniques such as electron microscopy, metallography, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, Aüger spectroscopy and electrochemical techniques are presented to illustrate their utility in corrosion failure investigations.
