Growth Mechanism vs Matter Transport in Thermally Growing Oxides on High Temperature Materials: A Brief Survey Based on the Case Study of Alumina Formers
This paper reviews briefly the relationship between the growth mechanism and matter transport using as an example the best currently applied metallic materials being alumina formers. The attention is paid to the experimental approach as well as to the interpretation procedure of experimental results. The scale structure, microstructure, morphology and phase composition are indicated as factors strongly affecting its growth mechanism. The attempt is made to elucidate the possible relationships between the obtained experimental results and actual scale growth mechanisms operating during oxidation exposures.
