This book is concerned with understanding the fundamental mechanisms of high temperature alloy oxidation. It uses this understanding to develop methods of predicting oxidation rates and the way they change with temperature, gas chemistry and alloy composition. The focus is on designing (or selecting) alloy compositions which provide optimal resistance to attack by corrosive gases. This book: emphasises quantitative calculations for predicting reaction rates and the effects of temperature, oxidant activities and alloy compositions; uses phase diagrams and diffusion paths to analyse and interpret scale structures and internal precipitation distributions; and, provides a detailed examination of corrosion in industrial gases (water vapour effects, carburisation and metal dusting, sulphidation). Text is well supported by numerous micrographs, phase diagrams and tabulations of relevant thermodynamic and kinetic data. It combines physical chemistry and materials science methodologies.

"A constant theme in the book is the use of theory to predict or at least rationalize experimental measurements. This emphasis on quantitative calculation is a real strength, adding significantly to the book's value. Although written and structured as a text book, High Temperature Corrosion and Oxidation of Metals develops its analysis to the level of a research monograph. Thus the book will be of value to both graduate students and established researchers in the field. Quite simply, this outstanding book is an essential reference for anyone involved in scientific aspects associated with high temperature corrosion." -- Oxidation of Metals
