Description

Corrosion of Aluminium highlights the practical and general aspects of the corrosion of aluminium alloys with many illustrations and references. In addition to that, the first chapter allows the reader who is not very familiar with aluminium to understand the metallurgical, chemical and physical features of the aluminium alloys.

The author Christian Vargel, has adopted a practitioner approach, based on the expertise and experience gained from a 40 year career in aluminium corrosion This approach is most suitable for assessing the corrosion resistance of aluminium- an assessment which is one of the main conditions for the development of many uses of aluminium in transport, construction, power transmission etc.

Key Features

  • 600 bibliographic references provide a comprehensive guide to over 100 years of related study
  • Providing practical applications to the reader across many industries
  • Accessible to both the beginner and the expert

Readership

Engineers/technicians in the aluminium transformer industry; Students and professors studying materials science, mechanical engineering and structural engineering

Table of Contents

About the Author

Christian Vargel

Professor Christian Vargel is a consultant for the use of aluminium in corrosion critical applications, Arvillard, France.He has over fifty years experience in corrosion of aluminium and metallurgy of aluminium. He was chief engineer at the Pechiney Group -- the European leader of production of aluminium -- where he primarily focused on corrosion of aluminium alloys, from a practical perspective. He surveyed and appraised numerous cases of in-service aluminium corrosion: building, transport, territory equipment, electrical and applications, and renewable energies, such as solar, OTEC, etc.
