Asset integrity is a key for smooth industrial operations, however material degradation, i.e. corrosion is major threat to infrastructure reliability and performance. In order to fight against corrosion, a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms and material performance is required which can be best achieved by employing advance analytical and modeling techniques in corrosion science and engineering. An in-depth understanding and utilization of such analytical tools, from electrochemical to in-situ/ex-situ surface characterization techniques as well as modeling of corrosion systems can help in problem identification as well as damage prediction. These areas are of considerable importance for the researchers in the industry as well academia, not only to develop new corrosion resistant materials but also to devise a suitable asset integrity strategy. Therefore, the primary aim of this book is to provide an in-depth information regarding the emerging developments in electrochemical, analytical and modeling tools available for corrosion research, so that it can enable its readers to use these techniques to overcome material degradation challenges. Here, in this chapter, a preview of 12 worthy contributions of this book will be presented.
