Instead of using expensive alloys to construct a tank or processing vessel, it is often more economical to use a less expensive metal, such as carbon steel, and install a lining to provide protection from corrosion. Corrosion of Linings and Coatings: Cathodic and Inhibitor Protection and Corrosion Monitoring offers focused coverage for professionals... more...
- Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 240.00
The importance of the nanoscale effects has been recognized in materials research for over fifty years, but it is only recently that advanced characterization and fabrication methods are enabling scientists to build structures atom-by-atom or molecule-by molecule. The understanding and control of the nanostructure has been, to a large extent, made... more...
