Corrosion and Wear of Steel. By G. W. Akimov. German edition of the Russian original. VEB Verlag Technik, Berlin, 1956. Pp. 180, illus. DM18 (approx. £1 10s.). This book is a collection of seven papers by members of the Central Institute of Technology, under the editorship of G. W. Akimov (Corr. M. Russian Acad. Sci.), and describes work carried out in the corrosion laboratory. The subjects discussed are: (1) The protection of steel against corrosion fatigue; (2) investigations into the intercrystalline stress corrosion of steel used in boiler‐making plant; (3) high‐temperature corrosion resistance of steel used in boiler‐making plant; (4) protection against the seizure of machine elements at high temperatures; (5) effects of surface treatment on the corrosion resistivity of steel; (6) effects of surface treatment investigated by using polarisation curves; and (7) repair of car parts by chromium build‐up.
