Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing stays the same for ever. The environmental degradation and corrosion of

materials is inevitable and affects most aspects of life. In industrial settings, this

inescapable fact has very significant financial, safety and environmental implications.

The Handbook of Environmental Degradation of Materials explains how to measure,

analyse, and control environmental degradation for a wide range of industrial materials

including metals, polymers, ceramics, concrete, wood and textiles exposed to

environmental factors such as weather, seawater, and fire.

Divided into sections which deal with analysis, types of degradation, protection and

surface engineering respectively, the reader is introduced to the wide variety of

environmental effects and what can be done to control them.

The expert contributors to this book provide a wealth of insider knowledge and

engineering knowhow, complementing their explanations and advice with Case Studies

from areas such as pipelines, tankers, packaging and chemical processing equipment

ensures that the reader understands the practical measures that can be put in place to save

money, lives and the environment
