  • Baorong Hou


  • The first book to present China’s corrosion studies in all fields, including more than 30 industries

  • Provides important corrosion data as well as corrosion protection strategies and advice

  • Presents multidisciplinary and applicable methods for a wide range of readers


About this book


This book comprehensively covers corrosion and corrosion protection in China in the areas including infrastructure, transportation, energy, water environment, as well as manufacturing and public utilities. Furthermore, it presents a major consulting project of Chinese Academy of Engineering, which was the largest corrosion investigation project in Chinese history, including the corresponding methods, processes and corrosion protection strategies, and provides valuable information for numerous industries. Sharing essential insights into corrosion prediction and decision-making, this book will help to decrease costs and extend the service life of equipment and facilities; accordingly, it will benefit scientists and engineers working on corrosion research and protection, as well as economists and government employees.
