This is the second of a number of volumes presenting a new synthetic approach to the problems of material degradation in different parts of the world. The method of deriving atmospheric stress on materials, described in Part A, is further worked out in Part B to include the details of the calculation procedures involved. It is shown that the method, originally intended for technological materials only, can be used for predicting deterioration of simple constructional parts. The degradation processes typical of extreme climates in various parts of the world are compared to those encountered in the temperate climatic zone. The author shows how to predict the deterioration of a range of materials used in technology and how to apply the results obtained in order to extend their lifetime and increase their reliability. This volume concentrates on the particular environmental conditions prevailing in the Asia, Australia and Oceania continent. The information is presented in the form of maps, each accompanied by a wealth of detailed data giving calculated predictions of the sorption, desorption, temperature, corrosion and microbiological stresses acting upon materials.
