A liquid film stops the rust

Corrosion damage science

The book provides comprehensive practical knowledge of the forms and types of corrosion damage, as they occur in natural surroundings, in technical application and under industrial conditions on metals and alloys and must be diagnosed using damage analysis methods. The visual manifestations of the corrosion damage are documented by extensive image material and the important influencing factors are supported by many graphical representations.

The "classics of technology" are unchanged new editions of traditional engineering works. Because of their didactic uniqueness and the timelessness of their content, they are part of the engineer's standard literature, even if they leave the presentation of the most modern methods to newer books.

The background to many computer-aided processes can only be understood by studying classical, more fundamental knowledge.

Often a "classic" offers a fund of important calculation or construction examples that can also serve as sample solutions for many modern problems.
