People seldom enjoy corrosion. They usually perceive it as a
nasty phenomenon with which they must cope. Yet many people, far
from the corrosion field, come across it because of their
professional duty. Lawyers, historians, doctors, architects,
philosophers, artists, and archeologists, to name a few, may want
or need to understand the principles of corrosion.
This volume explains this important topic in a lucid,
interesting, and popular form to everybody: to students and young
engineers who are only beginning their studies, to scientists and
engineers who have dealt with corrosion for many years, and to
non-specialists involved in corrosion problems.
The book uses a fresh writing style, with some new explanations
relating to thermodynamics of oxidation of iron and mild steels in
water, reversible and irreversible potential, solubility of oxygen
in water and aqueous solutions of electrolytes, corrosion of metals
in fuels, corrosion of storage tanks for fuels and their corrosion
control, corrosion monitoring in practice, humanitarian aspects of
corrosion science and technology (history of the evolution of
knowledge about corrosion, relationships between corrosion and
philosophy, corrosion and art). Many practical examples of various
corrosion phenomena are given.
