This chapter from the ASM Handbook, Volume 13A Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing and Protection is available online. It discusses metallurgical factors, like chemical composition, heat treating, grain size and cold-work effects on corrosion resistance. It also describes causes of corrosion failure, including heavy metal contamination, blast residues, flux inclusions, and galvanic attack.
