Introduction to the High-Temperature Oxidation of Metals
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungA straightforward treatment describing the oxidation processes of metals and alloys at elevated temperatures. This new edition retains the fundamental theory but incorporates advances made in understanding degradation phenomena. Oxidation processes in complex systems are discussed, from reactions in mixed environments to protective techniques, including coatings and atmosphere control. The authors provide a logical and expert treatment of the subject, producing a revised edition that will be a comprehensive guide to material scientists and engineers requiring an understanding of this elementary process.
