Corrosion Atlas Case Studies: 2019 Edition provides engineers with expedient daily corrosion solutions for common industrial equipment, no matter the industry. Providing a purely operational level view, this reference consists of concise templated case studies categorized by material and includes all the necessary details surrounding the phenomenon. Additional reference listings for deeper understanding beyond the practical elements are also included, as well as a glossary. Rounded out with an introductory foundational layer of corrosion principles critical to all engineers, Corrosion Atlas Case Studies: 2019 Edition delivers the daily tools required for engineers today to solve their equipment’s corrosion problems.

Key Features

  • Helps readers quickly solve equipment failure with easy-to find remedies organized by essential elements, such as material, system, part, cause, environment and phenomenon
  • Gives users what they need to solve fundamental corrosion elements on all major industrial components, no matter the industry
  • Identifies failures by appearance, with full color figures within each case study


Materials engineers and materials science specialists, Metallurgists, Chemical engineers, Corrosion engineers, petroleum engineers, materials science specialists, graduate-level chemical engineering students, researchers in the field of corrosion

"After an introduction into the structure of case collection and how to use this atlas the authors describe the general aspects of corrosion, control and prevention. Part II is dedicated to corrosion topics, where 13 common corrosion phenomena are described, and specific prevention measures are discussed. Part III deals with corrosion in water-bearing systems, since many corrosion phenomena are ocurrring in such systems, resulting in high service costs. A glossery of terms and tables with compositions of commonly used materials finish the text part, in which the reader gets a compact introduction into corrosion, pointing to the important aspects of this topic. The main part is dedicated to case studies- the actual atalas. The presented examples cover a wide range from pipes, heat exchangers, steam generators, bearings, ropes, bars etc. Special appearances of corrosion types are demonstrated by pictures of test sheets. Finally, these Corrosion Atlas Case Studies provide a helpful tool required for engineers in their daily life to quickly determine and solve their equipment's corrosion problems by compact theoretical background and vivid examples.
