Corrosion of Weldments
Corrosion of Weldments provides an understanding of the causes and forms of weld corrosion and the methods used to monitor and control it. It explains how welding influences the microstructure and corrosion behaviors of carbon and low-alloy steels, stainless steels, nickel-base and other nonferrous alloys, and dissimilar metal welds. It identifies the factors that contribute to corrosion-related failures of welds and describes the underlying damage mechanisms. It presents case histories documenting corrosion problems in oil and gas, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and other industries and the challenges associated with high-temperature environments. It also covers corrosion monitoring and testing methods and provides insights on making weldments more corrosion resistant.
