    Coping with Corrosion

    Published: October 01, 2011
    Author(s): Arthur C. Reardon, editor

    The word corrode is derived from the Latin corrodere, which means "to gnaw away." While corrosion can occur in many different forms, it is most generally defined as a chemical or electrochemical reaction between a material and its environment that produces a...

    Phases and Microstructure of Superalloys

    Published: November 01, 2010
    Author(s): B. Geddes, H. Leon and X. Huang

    The microstructure of superalloys is highly complex, with a large number of dispersed intermetallics and other phases that modify alloy behavior through their composition, morphology, and location. This chapter gives an overview of the notable phases in...

    Environmental Degradation

    Published: November 01, 2010
    Author(s): F.C. Campbell

    Exposure of composites to various environmental conditions may or may not cause degradation, depending on the specific material system and the specific environment. When environmental degradation does occur, it is usually, but not always, the matrix that is...

    Canada Restores a Fleet of Stainless Steel Railcars

    Published: June 01, 2010
    Author(s): Harold M. Cobb

    The restoration of a fleet of trains had never before been contemplated, let alone attempted, but VIA Rail, the publicly owned Canadian passenger train company, decided to refurbish its 40-year-old fleet of stainless steel railcars. The cars still looked fine....

    The Naming and Numbering of Stainless Steels

    Published: June 01, 2010
    Author(s): Harold M. Cobb

    For many years, the term stainless steel was applied only to those alloys that were hardenable by heat treatment, the martensitic alloys. This was logical, because the martensitic alloys had all of the characteristics of alloy steel, except that they did not...

    Two New Classes of Stainless Steel

    Published: June 01, 2010
    Author(s): Harold M. Cobb

    Until 1930, the three classes of stainless steel were the martensitic, ferritic, and austenitic (Fig. 39–41). The austenitic grades, such as 18-8, became the most popular for several reasons: their ease of production, fabrication, and welding and their superior...
