Text emphasizes basic principles of corrosion science which underpin extensions to practice
Provides a brief but rigorous introduction to corrosion science
Most chapters contain a problem set, which corresponds and complements lessons in the text
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.
