By P. Hancock, R. C. Hurst (auth.), Mars G. Fontana, Roger W. Staehle (eds.)

This sequence used to be equipped to supply a discussion board for evaluation papers within the quarter of corrosion. the purpose of those studies is to carry sure components of corrosion technology and know-how right into a sharp concentration. The volumes of this sequence are released nearly on a each year foundation and every includes 3 to 5 stories. The articles in each one quantity are chosen in any such manner as to be of curiosity either to the corrosion scientists and the corrosion technologists. there's, actually, a specific target in juxtaposing those pursuits end result of the value of mutual interplay and interdisciplinarity so very important in corrosion experiences. it's was hoping that the corrosion scientists during this manner might remain abreast of the actions in corrosion expertise and vice versa. during this sequence the time period "corrosion" is utilized in its very broadest feel. It contains, for that reason, not just the degradation of metals in aqueous en­ vironment but additionally what's usually often called "high-temperature oxidation. " additional, the plan is to be much more normal than those subject matters; the sequence will comprise all solids and all environments. this day, engineering solids comprise not just metals yet glasses, ionic solids, polymeric solids, and composites of those. Environments of curiosity has to be prolonged to liquid metals, a wide selection of gases, nonaqueous electrolytes, and different non­ aqueous liquids.

The Blind Spot: Science and the Crisis of Uncertainty

In today's unpredictable and chaotic global, we glance to technological know-how to supply walk in the park and answers--and frequently blame it while issues get it wrong. The Blind Spot unearths why our religion in clinical walk in the park is a deadly phantasm, and the way in simple terms by way of embracing science's inherent ambiguities and paradoxes will we actually delight in its attractiveness and harness its strength.

Volcanoes: Global Perspectives

Volcanoes are crucial parts within the gentle international stability of elemental forces that govern either the dynamic evolution of the Earth and the character of existence itself. with out volcanic job, existence as we all know it's going to no longer exist on our planet. even though attractive to behold, volcanoes also are in all likelihood damaging, and figuring out their nature is necessary to avoid significant death sooner or later.

The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics

This essential quantity encompasses a compendium of articles protecting an enormous variety of themes in physics that have been began or stimulated by means of the works of Albert Einstein: exact relativity, quantum idea, statistical physics, condensed topic physics, basic relativity, geometry, cosmology and unified box conception.


First released with the name computer in 2006 via Samleren GB-forlagene A/S, København 2006

A mind-bending delusion of technology, philosophy, paintings, historical past, and love. Fifty-five million years in the past, in the course of the early Eocene interval, a unexpected burst of lightning anxious a herd of small prehistoric horses. within the resulting panic, one of many horses, a five-year-old mare no greater than a fox terrier, fell right into a lake and drowned. On June twenty third, 1975, in Austin, Texas, a drop of oil combusted in a vehicle engine. This tiny explosion occurred simply because the Ford Pinto, pushed by means of a one-armed hitchhiker named Jimmy, pulled into the car parking zone of the bushes Creek flats, domestic to the younger girl within the passenger seat, a twenty-two-year-old biology pupil named Clarissa Sanders.

Machine is the tale of the hidden connections among those probably unrelated occasions. Omnivorous in its pursuit of information? each one in every of its eighty-eight pages a bold mix of truth and fiction, technological know-how and artwork? this brief novel relentlessly pursues certainly one of life's nice mysteries: the place does destiny finish and accident start?

P. Hancock and R. C. Hurst 46 Cracking of the oxide film during bending was revealed as a discontinuity in current response from an electrolytic cell comprising the specimen and a platinum electrode. 32 ~~ were found and these are similar to those for bulk oxide ceramics. The author ascribes the similarities in bulk and surface oxides to the large dimensions and surface roughness ofthe surface oxides tested. Microhardness measurements can possibly be used as a measure of the plasticity of oxide scales.

Surface Oxide Films at Elevated Temperatures 51 Trenkler 115 has utilized a simple method of determining the adhesive strength of scales on iron which involves the determination of the proportion of adherent scale remaining after a double rolling operation. Although only of a qualitative nature, the test was capable of demonstrating the influence of the alloying elements nicke~ sulfur, carbon, and silicon in increasing the scale adhesion on iron. A number of workers have attempted to measure the force required to separate a surface oxide from the substrate metal.

33 after 1 hr of oxidation at 1050°C. 52 P. Hancock and R. C. Hurst Fig. 33. Schematic section of hot bend test unit, after load application (after Bateman and Rolls I19 ). Later work by Rolls and Arnold 120 used the hot bend test to evaluate the adhesive strength of scales on Fe-Ni-Mo and Fe-Cr-Mo alloys. For both alloys failure was by decohesion at a distance from the metal-scale interface, indicating that the scale structure consisted of a weakly coherent bulk oxide and a strongly adherent, entangled inner layer.
