Corrosion of Ceramic and Composite Materials, Second Edition is a primary source of guidance for the assessment, interpretation, and inhibition of corrosion phenomena. This book discusses all aspects of corrosion of ceramics, including environments, mechanisms, and materials, and the means to minimize or eliminate corrosion.
The author compiles key findings and literature highlights from nearly a decade of scientific advancement, covering emerging techniques in corrosion analysis, characterization, and prediction. He provides at-a-glance coverage of national and international testing procedures for the evaluation of materials stability. The book covers the fundamentals of corrosion by gases, liquids, and solids of several ceramic materials including crystalline materials, glasses, composites, bioceramics, and advanced ceramics. It also discusses property/corrosion relationships and testing. The book collects a generous number of models, figures, and studies illustrating techniques to minimize and reduce the effects of various mechanisms contributing to the corrosion of civil, aerospace, and military structures. The second edition includes a review of all the current literature since publication of the first edition, an additional chapter on composites, and major sections added on bioceramics and weathering of construction materials.
Corrosion of Ceramic and Composite Materials, Second Edition explains existing corrosion problems and offers an excellent guide to the design and development of corrosion-resistant structures.

The author's intention to prepare a source book for engineers interested in the corrosion of ceramics has been achieved by bringing together a wealth of information that would otherwise have to be found in textbooks, technical journals and standards. There are useful questions at the end of each chapter to stimulate thoughtful readers to extend their interest in the subject. For a book of its caliber, one would expect it to find its way on to the bookshelves of corrosion engineers concerned with the intelligent selections of ceramics for industrial applications.

There are few comprehensive information sources available to ceramists working in the field of corrosion and oxidation, being largely limited to conference proceedings and journal articles. Consequently, Corrosion of Ceramic and Composite Materials is a welcome addition to the literature in this important area.
