Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
Corrosion of Nonferrous Alloy Weldments
Corrosion resistance can usually be maintained in the welded condition by balancing alloy compositions, shielding molten and hot metal surfaces, and choosing the proper welding parameters. This article describes some of the metallurgical factors that affect corrosion of weldments. It also reviews the considerations for selected nonferrous alloy systems such as aluminum, titanium, tantalum, and nickel.
