Engineering Materials And Their Applications
This edition of the classic text/reference book has been updated and revised to provide balanced coverage of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. The first five chapters assess the different structures of metals, ceramics and polymers and how stress and temperature affect them. Demonstrates how to optimize a material's structure by using equilibrium data (phase diagrams) and nonequilibrium conditions, especially precipitation hardening. Discusses the structures, characteristics and applications of the important materials in each field. Considers topics common to all materials—corrosion and oxidation, failure analysis, processing of electrical and magnetic materials, materials selection and specification. Contains special chapters on advanced and large volume engineering materials plus abundant examples and problems.

12.8 Corrosion rates Now let us take up the rate of corrosion. We have introduced
the concept of solution potential, and we find with further study that equilibrium
and this emf are closely associated. That is, the emf indicates the tendency to ...
For example, stainless steel will corrode more readily in a weak oxidizing acid (i
< icritlcal) than in a concentrated oxidizing ... polarization), and it intersects the
anode polarization curve within the active region, giving a higher corrosion rate.
The case of water-line corrosion is similar. We find that a tank that is kept only
partly filled with water will corrode more rapidly than a completely filled one.
Corrosion ... There are, of course, other examples of oxygen affecting the
