This invaluable reference provides a comprehensive overview of corrosion and environmental effects on metals, intermetallics, glossy metals, ceramics and composites of metals, and ceramics and polymer materials. It surveys numerous options for various applications involving environments and guidance in materials selection and substitution. Exploring a wide range of environments, including aqueous and high-temperature surroundings, Environmental Effects on Engineered Materials examines specific material-environmental interactions; corrosion rates and material limitations; preventive measurements against corrosion; utilization of older materials in recent applications; the use of new materials for existing equipment; and more.

Table of Contents

Metallic alloys: ferrous alloys (ferritic and martensitic); austenitic stainless steels; nickel-based alloys for resistance to aqueous corrosion; nickel-based alloys for resistance to high-temperature corrosion; corrosion of copper and its alloys; reactive and refractory alloys; aluminium alloys; magnesium alloys. Intermetallic alloys: environmental embrittlement of nickel-based and iron-based intermetallics. Ceramics: nonoxide ceramics; oxide ceramics. Composites: metal matrix composites; ceramic matrix composites; issues in predicting long-term environmental degradation of fibre-reinforced plastics. Metallic glasses: amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys.
