High Temperature Corrosion and Protection of Materials 4
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The present book provides a timely update to the current understanding of degradation processes in high-temperature materials, as related to chemical interactions with the environment.
The methods used to combat this degradation - particularly by means of protective coatings and surface treatments - are also analysed in detail.
The 115 papers are arranged so as to follow the progress of a material under the attack from a corrosive environment, from diagnosis of the attack, to identification of the processes of material degradation, to the consideration of means of treating the problem.
