ASM Handbook, Volume 13B provides comprehensive handbook coverage of the corrosion performance of materials and the selection and application of materials for corrosion resistance.
Material developments and advances in the study of corrosion since the landmark Metals Handbook, Volume 13, Corrosion (1987) have driven the development of a volume devoted to the corrosion performance of materials and the selection and application of materials for corrosion resistance. The result: a brand-new 700-page ASM Handbook, comprised of 48 peer-reviewed articles on how metals and nonmetals are effected by various elements. Covers ferrous and nonferrous metals: processed materials, including thermal spray coatings, electroplated materials, and clad metals; special products, including amorphous materials, intermetallics, and metal matrix composites; and nonmetallics, including ceramics, concrete, coatings, composites and elastomers. Includes an article on the global cost of corrosion and a full-color gallery of corrosion damage. Volume 13B, Corrosion: Materials joins Volume 13A, Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection (2003) in providing a scope of information from practical to material selection to the fundamental electrochemical nature of the kinetics and dynamics of corrosion. (Volume 13C, Corrosion: Environments and Industries will be published in 2006 to round out ASM Handbook coverage of all aspects of corrosion.)
