NIST 16A. NACE/NIST Corrosion Performance Databases - Metals



C P. Sturrock


COR SUR for Windows is a complete revision of the COR SUR and COR SUR2 (DOS) programs and theircompanion volumes, Corrosion Data Survey, Metals and Nonmetals Sections. Necessary corrections andadditions have been made after a thorough appraisal by the editors and selected reviewers.When a specific chemical environment and metal combination is entered, as well as the chosen data format, the user is first presented with a brief description of the chemical, with any relevant ancillary information. If the user should select a hazardous combination of metal and environment or a chemical in which ingress of air or oxygenmay be controlling, the hazard information is automatically displayed before the corrosion data are accessible. This is a necessary precaution against an inexperienced user choosing a combination which might be dangerous to personnel or equipment. The user is then presented with the data in either conventional tabular or graphic form.
