Robert Heidersbach as an Author
Experienced engineer, forensic consultant, and former professor Robert Heidersbach published “Metallurgy and Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production” in 2011. The book provides a general understanding of how and why corrosion occurs and the practical approaches to how the effects of corrosion can be mitigated. While the target audience for the book is recent graduates from engineering programs, it also provides valuable information for people new to the oil and gas, chemistry, metallurgy, and corrosion industries.
“Metallurgy and Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production” is based on Robert Heidersbach’s experience teaching new engineers all around the world the need to truly understand how metallurgy and corrosion control affects the oil industry. He has been fortunate enough to teach corrosion classes and training sessions in Brunei, which is a small nation in the South China Sea; Colombia; Denmark; Egypt; Indonesia; Japan; Malaysia; Turkey; Taiwan; and Trinidad and Tobago. Since his work has taken him all over the world, and Robert truly enjoys the opportunity to meet people from different cultures and connect over a common interest of metallurgy and corrosion control. See below for an excerpt from his preface:
There is a saying that goes something like this: “If you want to learn a subject, teach it.” Most of the subjects covered in this book ave been suggested by participants in classes I have taught worldwide to industrial audiences. During my career as a professor, I tried to bring into the classroom the lessons taught to me from these industrial courses and from my consulting practice.
