A valuable introduction to the appreciation of corrosion and the techniques for control. This book is an attempt to present in simple form a subject which affects every one of us. Without the use of metals, the advance of society would not have occurred, yet we allow our most valuable resources to be wasted through corrosion. In many instances, corrosion is inevitable, but it can be controlled. Engineers have a major contribution to make in reducing the unnecessary levels of corrosion but it is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that society uses its metals to the best advantage. An understanding of corrosion and its control is important for all of us, if only for the selfish reason that it saves us money. Studies of the effects of corrosion in society have shown that we seem unable to learn from our mistakes. This problem can be properly addressed only through education and it is therefore the aim of this book to bring to the attention of as many people as possible the reasons for the occurrence of corrosion and the methods of controlling it. This second edition has been expanded and updated.
