This self-study guide is designed for the person who faces corrosion problems related to metals but who has no formal training in the subject. Rather than learning by making mistakes that may even escalate the problem, the reader will be able to identify the type of corrosion and be guided to the best ways to solve, or at least cope with, the situation. This is a non-mathematical approach, assuming no knowledge of basic science. The bare minimum of chemistry and metallurgy needed to understand corrosion is provided here. To make sure the reader has grasped the main points, each chapter is followed by multiple-choice questions - over 180 in all. Terms that might be unclear are defined at the end of each chapter and are also listed in the index for quick reference. There are more that 450 terms that might be encountered in a wide range of industries. This book is available in print and as an Acrobat PDF e-book on CD-ROM which is fully searchable, hypertext linked, with each page printable.
