In an age of increasing environmental concern about waste, pollution and the performance of lean materials, an appreciation of corrosion and the techniques for controlling it is essential to all technologists. The second edition of Corrosion for Science and Engineering continues the tradition of the first by providing an accessible introduction with sympathetic and clear explanations for students. The reader is led through the basic theory and causes of corrosion towards an appreciation of effective corrosion management. This new edition retains the mixture of practice and theory. Corrosion for Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary text suitable for courses in engineering, metallurgy, materials science and chemistry.All are consequences of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which is most simply stated in the form Heat will not flow of its own accord from a cold place to a hot ... Only a proportion of this internal energy is available as the useful energy which powers our engines or the destructive ... now use a diagram called an energy profile to describe the free energy changes which occur during the reaction (Fig.
