example of corrosion

Where can I get examples of corrosion?  I am looking for general example of various types of corrosion.

RE: example of corrosion


For the quick meathod, go to www.google.com type "corrosion" and search the web.  This should give you more than enough info.

For the long meathod, I would go to the library and search for books on corrosion.


RE: example of corrosion

The ASM handbooks Vol 13 Corrosion and Vol 11 Failure Analysis and Prevention would be a good start.

Good luck

RE: example of corrosion

MIL-HDBK-729, MIL-HDBK-735 and USAF T.O. 1-1-691 are great "primers" for corrosion info and some photos.  MIL-HDBK-735 is the BEST reference I've found [took course from the author in the mid-80's]. Theses document can be found on-line thru various web sites [anybody out there have good mil-spec/hdbk-xxx sources??? I acces these thru IHS on contract to my company].

T.O. 1-1-691 [hands-on text for military corrosion-control Techs] "MAY" be available at:

RE: example of corrosion

Many MIL and FED Specs. are available online for free at http://astimage.daps.dla.mil/quicksearch/. ; You'll need to know the number of the document your're looking for (e.g. "MIL-HDBK-735")...

RE: example of corrosion

I used to have a copy of NACE "Corrosion Basics" which was a good primer. Guess it is still available Even have the ISBN no. on file! It is ISBN 0-915567-02-4. Trust this is of help.

RE: example of corrosion

Just try to find a book titled: Corrossion Engineering (by Mars G. Fontana)  Sorry..this is not promotion.  But I found that this book is good enough to answer your question.
