The main declared objective of the present volume was to introduce the engineering and mathematical approximation schemes to the readers and describe both kinetics and thermodynamics of the electro-chemical systems considered the fundamentals of the corrosion science. The material in each of the chapters has been given in a very easy-to-follow manner.
The readers will be provided with the clear explanations and definitions of all theoretical concepts involved. Every effort was made by the author to keep the mathematics as simple as possible to make sure that the students do not experience too much of difficulty when trying to understand the basics of the electrochemical processes relating to the corrosion. The readers are offered an opportunity to learn and understand the corrosion using the theory clearly explained with the aid of numerous images and figures, schemes and graphs.
Several example problems have been included in the book to better illustrate the application of the math and electrochemical concepts to solve the corrosion problems. The corrosion is one of the most serious problems to be paid attention in shipbuilding and exploitation and we would therefore recommend this book to every person involved in construction, handling and repair of ships.
