Summary and Info
This book is an excellent summary of the basic principles of high temperature corrosion; an understanding of which is of paramount importance in understanding the subject. The book begins with the basics of thermodynamics, followed by an up-to-date summary of experimental methods; many of which have not been covered by previous books. The usual supporting topics, such as defect structures in compounds, are presented with great clarity. The book concludes with numerous case-histories which give a good basis for solving practical problems, using the principles expounded in the book. The writers have drawn upon their many years of experience in the field and have provided a most useful book. This work will prove to be an excellent and enduring textbook for graduate courses in oxidation. Content: Front Matter • Introduction • Preface • Table of Contents 1.
