Summary and Info
Corrosion science is probably unique in crossing the borders of almost all technologies and since 1963 `Corrosion' has been the leading source of information on the subject. It provides an encyclopedic coverage of corrosion science and technology and is an essential first point of reference for everyone in the field. The science has advanced significantly in the seventeen years since the publication of the second edition and this new edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect this.`Corrosion' is a two-volume reference work embracing a vast range of topics including high-temperature and aqueous corrosion and their control. It was first published in 1963 by George Newnes Ltd and over the years it has gained an international reputation. This edition extends to over 2700 pages, and contains 138 sections all written by specialists. It follows the format of previous editions, some sections have been completely rewritten, whilst others have been altered and extended. New sections have been added to cover areas not previously included. Lionel Shreir, who wrote the first two editions, has been joined by two editors, Ray Jarman and Tim Burstein, to produce this unique work. Although he did not live to see its publication it is hoped that this book serves as a fitting tribute to his memory.
