Fundamentals of corrosion : mechanisms, causes, and preventative methods by Philip A Schweitzer( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by an authority in corrosion science, Fundamentals of Corrosion: Mechanisms, Causes, and Preventative Measures comprehensively describes the causes of corrosion - and the means to limit or prevent it. Engineers, designers, architects, and all those involved with the selection of construction materials will relish a reference that provides such a thorough yet basic illustration of the causes, prevention, and control of corrosion." "Exposure to the atmosphere is one of the largest problems and biggest causes of corrosion that engineers and designers face in construction. It has been further estimated that the cost of protection against atmospheric corrosion accounts for approximately half the total cost of all corrosion protection methods. This book places special emphasis on atmospheric exposure and presents vital information regarding the design of structures, automobiles, household plumbing, manufacturing equipment, and other entities, as well as the effects of de-icing chemicals on highways and bridges."--Jacket

Corrosion engineering handbook. atmospheric and media corrosion of metals by Philip A Schweitzer( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding corrosion is essential for selecting and maintaining equipment and structural components that will withstand environmental and process conditions effectively. "Fundamentals of Metallic Corrosion: Atmospheric and Media Corrosion of Metals" focuses on the mechanisms of corrosion as well as the action of various corrodents on metals and their alloys. The book is tailored to support specialists studying corrosion in metallic materials or using metallic materials. The first chapters describe different forms of metallic corrosion and the effects of atmospheric corrodents such as sulfur-, nitrogen- and chlorine-containing compounds. They also discuss the corrosive effects of weathering conditions and natural media including water, acids, salts, organics, and gases. The remaining chapters are divided into metal types and their alloys. They cover stainless, ferritic, and martensitic steels as well as nickel alloys, copper, copper alloys, aluminum, titanium, zinc, and lead. Each chapter examines the corrosion potential of the material and provides easy-to-use charts that specify their compatibility with selected corrodents.; The book also compares the corrosion resistance of nonferrous metals and alloys

Corrosion engineering handbook. cathodic and inhibitor protection and corrosion monitoring by Philip A Schweitzer( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of using expensive alloys to construct a tank or processing vessel, it is often more economical to use a less expensive metal, such as carbon steel, and install a lining to provide protection from corrosion. "Corrosion of Linings and Coatings: Cathodic and Inhibitor Protection and Corrosion Monitoring" offers focused coverage for professionals interested in protective linings and coatings, corrosion protection, and monitoring techniques. The author details various materials and methods for controlling and protecting against corrosion. He discusses the use of mortars, grouts, and monolithic surfaces and explains how the use of inhibitors and cathodic protection help prevent corrosion. The book also provides details for various types of linings materials and coatings and includes valuable compatibility charts for each material covered. The author concludes with an explanation of a variety of corrosion monitoring techniques currently available
Paint and coatings : applications and corrosion resistance by Philip A Schweitzer( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paint and Coatings: Applications and Corrosion Resistance helps designers, engineers, and maintenance personnel choose the appropriate coatings to best protect equipment, structures, and various components from corrosion, degradation, and failure. The book addresses all factors - including physical and mechanical properties, workability, corrosion resistance, and cost - that need to be considered in selecting the material of construction for application-specific components. The first chapters provide a background of the principles of coatings, the theory of adhesion, and the importance of surface preparation. The remaining chapters address paint systems and the different types of coatings, including organic coatings for immersion applications, metallic coatings, conversion coatings, cementitious coatings, monolithic surfacing for concrete, tribological synergistic coatings, and high temperature coatings. Each category includes the method or methods of applications, areas of application, and corrosion resistance properties. The book also includes tables that compare various coating materials in the presence of selected corrodents. Paint and Coatings: Applications and Corrosion Resistance is an essential guide for those involved in the design, material selection, and maintenance of structures, equipment, plant facilities, and miscellaneous components
