Introduction to Corrosion Science is suitable for a one-semester course in corrosion science at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level for students that do not have backgrounds in electrochemistry but have taken introductory courses in materials science or physical chemistry. The text follows the approach of a physical chemist or materials scientist and is geared toward students of physical chemistry, materials science, and engineering. In addition, practicing corrosion engineers and materials engineers will find useful information that will broaden their understanding of the fundamental principles of corrosion science. This textbook grew out of classroom lectures, which the author presented as a Professorial Lecturer at George Washington University, Washington, D.C. Chapters on: o Charged interfaces o Electrochemical cells o Thermodynamics of corrosion o Corrosion kinetics and mixed potential theory o Concentration polarization and diffusion o Passivity o Crevice corrosion and pitting o Stress-corrosion cracking and corrosion fatigue o Corrosion inhibitors o Corrosion under organic coatings o AC impedance o High temperature oxidation Key features: o Detailed illustrations o Worked example problems o Problem sets after each chapter o Extensive references o Appendices to show the origin of important equations About the author: Dr. E. McCafferty is a Professorial Lecturer at George Washington University and a consultant to the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington D.C., where he has conducted research in corrosion science for over thirty years.This book grew out of classroom lectures which the author presented between 1982 and the present while a professorial lecturer at George Washington University, Washington, DC, where he organized and taught a graduate course on ...
