Engineering Tools for Corrosion: Design and Diagnosis proposes models and equations derived from theory. It includes discussions of the estimation of main corrosion parameters for corrosion rate, electrochemical constraints, thresholds limits and initiation time. The algorithms proposed are the conjugation of theory and engineering practice resulting from research and professional activities carried out by the author for almost four decades.
- Presents a rational approach to the corrosion prediction and evaluation dilemma
- Illustrates new models and algorithms for quantitative estimation of corrosion related factors and parameters
- Includes the design and interpretation of accelerated corrosion tests

Luciano Lazzari was a professor in materials and corrosion engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, until 2015. He has continued his professional activity at Cescor srl (www.cescor.it) which began in 1986 and where he serves as the current president of the company. His research interests include corrosion in the oil & gas industry and the natural environment, cathodic protection, ac-induced corrosion, and material selection. He is currently a member of the European Federation of Corrosion and NACE International.
