Special Issue "Corrosion, Fatigue and Corrosion Protection of Metals and Their Alloys in Various Environments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2024 | Viewed by 406
Metallic materials are widely used in diversified sectors, such as chemical manufacturing, oil making and refining, the construction industry, machinery equipment, technological equipment and marine practices. While corrosion is a significant part of the destruction of manufacturing structures, a large number of investigations have been accomplished to find procedures to diminish corrosion and “wear costs”. The corrosion of metals and their alloys exhibits an appreciable economic and industrial concern. In industrial procedures, the metal surfaces employed are exposed to highly aggressive acids and alkali environments, which provoke substantial corrosion and deterioration.
Acidic and alkaline solutions are employed in a number of technological processes that currently cause severe metallic corrosion of varied metal structures and equipment in manufacturing environments. Some explorations carried out for the protection of metallic materials in the field of engineering have determined that composite coatings are utilized as the most efficacious and simple way to hinder the deterioration of these materials in corrosive media. The application of inhibitors, using organic, metallic or inorganic coverings; cathodic and anodic defenses; electropolymerization methods; and nanostructured coatings are techniques for metallic materials’ anticorrosion protection.
The purpose of this Special Issue, "Corrosion, fatigue and corrosion protection of metals and their alloys in various environments" is to bring together and specify the various corrosion, fatigue and corrosion-endurance techniques, developments and applications from the perspective of the surface protection of diverse materials in different corrosive environments. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.
