Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring, Second Edition, reviews electrochemical techniques for corrosion monitoring, such as polarization techniques, potentiometric methods, electrochemical noise and harmonic analyses, galvanic sensors, differential flow through cells and multielectrode systems. Other sections analyze the physical or chemical methods of corrosion monitoring, including gravimetric, radioactive tracer, hydrogen permeation, electrical resistance and rotating cage techniques, and examine corrosion monitoring in special environments such as microbial systems, concrete and soil, and remote monitoring and model predictions. A final group of chapters case studies covering ways in which corrosion monitoring can be applied to engine exhaust systems, cooling water systems, and more. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, this book is a valuable reference guide for engineers and scientific and technical personnel who deal with corrosion in such areas as automotive engineering, power generation, water suppliers and the petrochemical industry.

About the Editor

Lietai Yang

Lietai Yang has broad experience in corrosion and high-pressure and high-temperature solution chemistry and is considered a leading authority on corrosion monitoring. He has authored/co-authored over 90 articles published in journals and conference proceedings, and multiple chapters in technical books. He has organized and chaired over 10 international symposia and workshops on corrosion monitoring. He holds 13 patents related to corrosion monitoring and electrochemical sensors for solution chemistry at high-temperatures and high-pressures. Many of the patented sensors are now deployed in plants and oil fields for corrosion mitigation programs. In addition, he has served in various roles at NACE International and ASTM International, and is the past chair of the US Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee 156 (2013–2015). He is a Fellow of NACE.
