Abstract

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.Both the printed volumes and the COR SUR and COR SUR2 (DOS) programs have been widely distributed and used successfully as information helpful in materials selection for specific chemical service. The revision was deemed necessary not only to add new information concerning chemicals, alloy families and specific alloys, but also to correct certain inaccuracies and omissions in the previous editions.The previous list of 25 alloy groupings has been expanded to 37 to accommodate the 14% silicon cast irons, which had been dropped from the fifth edition of the text, as well as modern alloy developments in the stainless steel, uperaustenitic and nickel-chromium-molybdenum group. There are nearly 1,000 corrosive environments represented in the metals corrosion database.For the metals corrosion data, four performance ratings are used: < 0.05 mm/y (< 2 mpy), < 0.508 mm/y (< 20 mpy), 0.0508-1.27 mm/y (20-50 mpy), and > 1.27 mm/y (> 50 mpy).
