Engineering Materials

The corrosion literature is filled with data on the performance of various materials in myriads of chemical environments. While modern electronic search techniques can provide ready access to a wealth of constantly updated information, the sheer volume of data can be overwhelming. Engineers must constantly be on guard when considering such information to be certain not only that the chemical environment is adequately defined, but also that the particular alloy (including its heat treatment) and the character of attack are fully described and understood.
