About the book
Corrosion Prevention and Control discusses the importance of mitigating and managing corrosion to reduce economic loss, meet quality of product and avoid unexpected shutdown of the plants. One way of mitigating the corrosion problems encountered in industries is to evolve and implement adequate strategies and science and technology to resolve the issues and prolong the science. Also as new materials and processes are employed in the industry, new corrosion problems occur demanding innovative mitigation technologies. In this book, eminent scientists have contributed articles on corrosion management, industrial corrosion, coatings and surface modification, corrosion inspection, testing and monitoring, and failure analysis.
The book provides a comprehensive insight to the students, research scholars, young faculties, management and industrial personnel with a versatile and reliable knowledge on corrosion prevention and control.
