High-Temperature Oxidation and Sulphidation Processes

1st Edition

Proceedings of the International Symposium on High-Temperature Oxidation and Sulphidation Processes, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, August 26-30, 1990



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.
