Paper Title:
The Characterisation of Oxide Scales Grown on Nickel Containing Steel Substrates Using Electron Backscatter Diffraction
  Abstract

The oxidation of steels is critically influenced by its constituent alloying elements. These alter the classical three-phase model of the external oxide scales and in addition can introduce internal oxidised regions. This paper considers the oxidation of a number of nickel containing Fe based alloys of varying compositions, including stainless steel. These have been oxidised under different conditions to produce a number of scale morphologies, which have been characterised using two SEM based techniques; Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) and Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy (EDS). Results have shown that nickel promotes the formation of a fibrous internal scale, consisting of iron oxide particles (or iron/chromium oxide in the case of stainless steel) along grain boundary regions. Nickel is rejected from these oxide particles and consequently nickel content is enriched in neighbouring metallic areas.
