Environmental Deterioration of Materials
Edited by A. Moncmanova, Slovak Technical University, Slovakia, WIT Press, 2007, 336 pages

Increasing levels of pollution in the environment not only harms the natural world, but also accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of materials used in technical work as well as objects with historical value. Because it’s impossible to eliminate the numerous sources of this negative effect, there are currently increased efforts toward improving preservation. This requires a thorough knowledge of the causes of the degradation of the materials. The fundamental principles that underlie the environmental degradation of widely used and economically important construction materials, such as metals, stone, brick, concrete, timber, cast iron, steel, copper alloys and aluminum, are deeply explored in this text.

It features information on methods of deterioration, as well as general information on the economic impact of the damaging processes, and offers some suggested fundamental protection techniques for buildings, industrial and agricultural facilities, monuments and culturally important structures.

Designed for use by materials, corrosion, civil and environmental engineers, designers, architects and restoration staff, this book will also be a useful tool for managers from different industrial sectors and auditors of environmental management systems. It can be used as a complementary course book for university students with classes in any of the above disciplines.
