This Third Edition of the definitive reference on corrosion is totally revised and greatly expanded. It includes 679 case histories divided over 135 materials in 13 material groups, 25 systems (installations) and 44 different phenomena. Most of the new case histories have been supplied by 20 companies and a number of private persons. Significant improvements include the addition of cross-references between the different case histories, an extension of the Introduction with a clear, more penetrating study of electrochemical corrosion, a chapter on Corrosion Topics and a chapter on corrosion in a number of different water-bearing systems, and a completely new second index on installations, systems and parts.
Features of this book:
· THE standard reference work in the field
· A practical tool with application to real life problems
· Will improve accuracy and speed of corrosion analyses
· Information is systematically organized for ease of use
· Superb quality of visual information gives the clues vital for analysing the problems.
Purchasers of the previous editions will certainly want to have the new During in their possession. This is an essential reference work for those responsible for the design, fabrication, operation and maintenance of the extremely varied and often very complicated systems and machinery used in today's technology. The increased number of case histories, with cross-references and new indexes, makes the Atlas even more widely applicable than the previous editions. It can therefore be used as an aid in the solution of many practical corrosion problems. It also serves to bring the specialist and the person trying to solve a corrosion problem closer by presenting a common language, so that misunderstanding can be avoided.
Furthermore, the Atlas is an important educational aid for self-study and for special courses, and can also be profitably used as part of or an addition to existing general courses in technical schools and colleges and universities. Because of its unique, extensive, clear and beautifully produced illustrative material these courses will be less abstract and theoretical and so give a much closer link between education and the practice of corrosion prevention and control.

The Corrosion Atlas should become a tool for the engineer which, by making visual comparisons possible, will provide him with indications as to the causes of possible control of corrosion confronting him in practice but above all, it will serve as a work of reference from which he can derive the necessary information to prevent corrosion altogether. Mr. During has provided us with a well organized Atlas on the control of corrosion in industrial systems. It is a book that any corrosion engineer should have, read and use in his professional activities. ...a comprehensive and beautifully produced compilation which is vital for any individual or organization involved in corrosion control. Thus, it should be prominently displayed in any technical library to be used as a working tool by corrosion specialists.
...a superbly produced publication which has been prepared with a great deal of care.
