This book describes the origin, use, and limitations of electrochemical phase diagrams, testing schemes for active, passive, and localized corrosion, the development and electrochemical characterization of passivity, and methods in process alteration, failure prediction, and materials selection. It offers useful guidelines for assessing the efficacy of corrosion inhibitors and coatings for metals and alloys, developing effective corrosion prediction models, calculating the corrosion rates of various materials, determining the resistance of alloys to pitting and crevice corrosion, and considering current and potential distribution effects on corrosion.


"The motto of this book as stated in the Forward is that 'electrochemical methods, that are intelligently applied and rationally interpreted, are valuable research tools for understanding and solving corrosion problems.' This book will provide those who wish to follow this motto with a helpful guide. It is well-suited as a reference for corrosion researchers as well as a text for further study."

- Chemie Ingenieur Technik

"The text is comprehensive and well organized. Plenty of figures, tables, and graphs are provided, which makes for an interesting and easy-to-follow text…The strength of the book is the clarity that the authors provide for the reader with critical approaches to electrochemical techniques and corrosion."
