This work examines the corrosion of stainless steels and similar chromium-bearing nickel-containing higher alloys, detailing various corrosive environments, including atmospheric and fire-side corrosion, corrosion by water and soil, and corrosion caused by particular industrial processes. It presents the acceptable isocorosion parameters of concentration and temperature for over 250 chemicals for which stainless alloys are the preferred materials of construction.

Corrosion failures of industrial components are commonly associated with welding. The reasons are many and varied. For example, welding may reduce the resistance to corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking by altering composition and microstructure, modifying mechanical properties, introducing residual stress, and creating physical defects. This book details the many forms of weld corrosion and the methods used to minimize weld corrosion. Chapters on specific alloys groups--carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, high-nickel alloys, and nonferrous alloys--describe both general welding characteristics and the metallurgical factors that influence corrosion behavior. Corrosion problems associated with dissimilar metal weldments are also examined. Case histories document corrosion problems unique to specific industries including oil and gas, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and electric power. Special challenges caused by high-temperature environments are discussed. Commonly used methods to monitor weld corrosion and test methods for evaluation of intergranular, pitting, crevice, stress-corrosion cracking, and other forms of corrosion are also reviewed.

Covered a wide range of topics on stainless steels with most of the presentations dealing with narrow segments of a specific topic. Therefore, a single theme of the presentations may be that work on stainless steels for medical uses continues and that stainless steels may be part of the answers for some of the issues facing the surgical community today, such as biological response, corrosion resistance, mechanical performance, quality and cost.
