This book provides a general holistic view of materials degradation without undue emphasis on aqueous corrosion with the neglect of other important topics such as liquid metal corrosion. Discussion of materials degradation is balanced by detailed description and evaluation of surface engineering as a means of managing materials degradation. Thus, the trainee engineer is presented with a comprehensive view of the problem rather than just a part of the problem. The control or management of materials degradation is not only discussed in scientific terms, but the economics or financial aspects of materials degradation and surface engineering is also discussed in detail with the help of analytical models.


Mechanisms of Materials Degradation: Mechanical Causes of Materials Degradation; Chemical Causes of Materials Degradation; Materials Degradation Induced by Heat and Other Forms of Energy; Duplex Causes of Materials Degradation; Surface Engineering: Discrete Coatings; Integral Coatings and Modified Surface Layers; Characterization of Surface Coatings; Application of Control Techniques: Control of Materials Degradation; Financial and Industrial Aspects of Materials Degradation and Its Control.
