This comprehensive study covers all types of stainless steels: history, production, passivity, new development in stainless steels alloys  and corrosion.

Experimental work that included corrosion rate, microstructure investigation and electrochemical test has been shown with ullisturations for the stressed sensitized austenitic stainless steel specimens.

Mechanisms of stress corrosion cracking of austenitic stainless steel has been clearly discussed in details. It also covers microstructure investigating of different specimens of type 304,316 and 321.

Inside this book you find a wide and deep discussion about:

Effect of Nitrogen Content on Stress Corrosion Cracking of Austenitic Stainless Steels in Seawater.

Stress Corrosion Cracking of Austenitic Stainless Steels In Petroleum Refineries.

This book is a valuable reference for any researcher or student interested in this subject.
