Metallic Materials compares and contrasts the corrosion resistance of wrought stainless steel and high nickel alloys and explores recent advances in the production of exotic metals. It emphasizes the physical and mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, workability and cost of various metals. The authors analyze the physical and mechanical properties of metals, define relevant terminology, describe the various forms of corrosion to which metals may be susceptible, examine wrought ferrous metals, alloys, and typical applications, and cover wrought nickel and high nickel alloys. This is a handy reference for the busy engineer and student in corrosion, materials, chemical, mechanical, civil, design, process, metallurgical, manufacturing, and industrial engineering.
