Abstract:

In Part I, the book discusses the processes associated with the action of liquid metals on solids in stressed and unstressed states. The following corrosion action of liquid metals is described the mechanisms of dissolution, non-isothermal and isothermal mass transfer, intercrystalline fracture, formation of compounds and solid solutions, effect of impurities in liquid metals, etc. The changes occurring in the mechanical properties of solid metals under the action of liquid metals during short duration tests and during long-term strength, creep and fatigue tests are also described. Adsorptive, corrosive and diffusive effects of liquid metals on solids in a stressed state are discussed. In Part II, the mechanism of the reaction of liquid metals on solids in a stressed state, is discussed in continuity with Part 1.
