Description

Industry pays an enormous price for material degradation. The Handbook of Environmental Degradation of Materials outlines these costs, but more importantly, explains how to measure, analyze, and prevent environmental degradation for a wide range of indsutrial materials. Experts from around the world share how a diverse set of industries cope with the degradation of metals, polymers, reinforced concrete, clothing, and wood under adverse environmental conditions such as weather, seawater, and fire. Case studies show how organizations from small consulting firms to corporate giants design and manufacture products that are more resistant to environmental effects. By implementing these standards companies of all sizes should realize savings beneficial to their operations.

Readership

Engineers - chemical, civil, design, materials, mechanical. Industries - aerospace, automotive, chemical processing, consumer packaging, paints and coatings, petrochemical, pipeline, plastics, shipbuilding. Range - graduate students to practicing engineers.
