Corrosion and Protection pp Cite as. Application of coatings The choice between these possibilities is usually based upon economic considerations, but in many cases aspects such as appearance, environment and safety must also be taken care of. Two or more of the five principles are commonly used at the same time. It is important to decide upon corrosion prevention at the design stage. In addition to the sections in the present chapter, reference is made to recommended protection methods under the treatment of various corrosion forms in Chapter 7.
Principles of Corrosion Engineering and Corrosion Control
Corrosion is when a refined metal is naturally converted to a more stable form such as its oxide, hydroxide or sulphide state this leads to deterioration of the material. Metal corrodes when it reacts with another substance such as oxygen, hydrogen, an electrical current or even dirt and bacteria. Corrosion can also happen when metals like steel are placed under too much stress causing the material to crack. The most common type of iron corrosion occurs when it is exposed to oxygen and the presence of water, which creates a red iron oxide commonly called rust. Rust can also effect iron alloys such as steel. The rusting of iron can also occur when iron reacts with chloride in an oxygen-deprived environment, while green rust, which is another type of corrosion, can be formed directly from metallic iron or iron hydroxide. This is the most common form of corrosion which usually takes place evenly over large areas of a material's surface.
Denny a. Jones Principles and Prevention of Corrosion
Corrosion is an electrochemical process in which metals and alloys undergo transformation into predominantly oxides, hydroxides, and aqueous salts. In the corrosion process, two reactions take place. In one, the anodic reaction, metal atoms are ionised and pass into solution leaving their electrons within the original metal surface.
Introduction to Corrosion Science is suitable for a one-semester course in corrosion science at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level for students that do not have backgrounds in electrochemistry but have taken introductory courses in materials science or physical chemistry. The text follows the approach of a physical chemist or materials scientist and is geared toward students of physical chemistry, materials science, and engineering. In addition, practicing corrosion engineers and materials engineers will find useful information that will broaden their understanding of the fundamental principles of corrosion science. This textbook grew out of classroom lectures, which the author presented as a Professorial Lecturer at George Washington University, Washington, D.
Corrosion is a huge issue for materials, mechanical, civil and petrochemical engineers. With comprehensive coverage of the principles of corrosion engineering, this book is a one-stop text and reference for students and practicing corrosion engineers. Highly illustrated, with worked examples and definitions, it covers basic corrosion principles, and more advanced information for postgraduate students and professionals.
