This book deals with the fundamental description of the thermodynamics and kinetics of high temperature oxidation of sulphidation of metals and intermetallic compounds. It is a comprehensive account of a large amount of new work in the field including modelling, analysis and a range of experimental methods. The text deals with both basic materials, and some current high temperature structural materials.


For industrial researchers, design engineers in metallurgy and materials science.
