Abstract:

The purpose of these studies was twofold 1 to extend and develop vacuum microbalance and electron diffraction methods for studying fast oxidation reactions of high temperature metals and solids under carefully controlled conditions of temperature, pressure, and gas flow and 2 to determine the kinetics and mechanisms of oxidation of a number of high temperature metals and solids.
