We all know that the mild steel considered prime construction material in many fields is seriously prone to corrosion when exposed to the marine and industrial environments where the harmful pollutants exist. These problems are even more severe in tropical countries. One of the ways to improve the corrosion resistance of the steel is weathering steel. The present publication will shed some light on the corrosion problem.
It starts with the general theoretical information on rusting of iron and corrosion of steels, atmospheric corrosion and degradation of the organic coatings, rust characterization etc. The next chapter tells readers about practical approach to this problem including various tests, while the third chapter is devoted to the experimental evidence covering corrosion rate and rust appearance, controlled lab tests etc.
The final part of the volume is dealing with the field exposure test. Some additional data is provided in the appendix to the main body of the volume. Needless to say that the content of this book will be useful to anyone engaged in design and construction of the marine vessels and other floating constructions; however, it may be equally useful to the construction engineers employed in the industrial sector.
