Corrosion of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys
Corrosion of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys is an authoritative reference on aluminum corrosion processes and prevention techniques. It covers basic forms of corrosion including pitting and crevice corrosion, intergranular and exfoliation corrosion, galvanic and stray-current corrosion, cavitation and fretting corrosion, and stress-corrosion cracking. It describes the underlying corrosion mechanisms and how they are affected by composition, microstructure, heat treatment, mechanical working, and joining methods. It discusses the corrosion behavior of alloys and composites, the use of surface treatments, inhibitors, and coatings, and best practices in materials selection and design. It also discusses corrosive environments, corrosion monitoring and inspection methods, and tests for specific forms of corrosion.
