The up-to-date knowledge gathered from internationally known scientists, academicians, planning and practicing engineers, program managers and technicians makes this collection an invaluable and informative educational work. The pooling and leveraging of each others’ knowledge, experience, expertise and talents at the global scale proves to be most meaningful, beneficial and productive. It further helps to propel corrosion research into the next level of technological advancement.
