This volume offers solutions to the problems associated with atmospheric corrosion by covering corrosion theory, the mechanisms and effects of corrosion on specific materials, and the means of protecting materials against atmospheric conditions. It assesses the financial cost of protecting construction materials against the elements and it considers temperature, humidity, and the presence of contaminants in the air to optimize the ability of materials to withstand the influence of weathering.


" . . .comprehensive. . .. . . .worthy of careful reading. . .. . . .easily comprehensible even to non-specialists. . .. . . .a useful contribution to the current practical literature on corrosion prevention and control. "
