How can engineers deal with oxidation and corrosion at high temperatures? How do we prevent degradation of mechanical properties of materials at high temperatures in corrosive environments?

These are fundamental questions that perturb corporations and manufacturing firms alike across various industries that include the aerospace and petrochemical companies.

Published by World Scientific, "High Temperature Corrosion" reviews the state of the art of high temperature related problems pertaining to their utility, microstructure, mechanical properties, actual behavior in different environments, their protection by various kinds of coatings at high temperatures and a new concept of nanomaterials at high temperatures. Concepts relating to the modification or deterioration of mechanical properties when material is exposed to an aggressive environment compared to an inert environment or vacuum are covered. The other chapters include the behavior of various advanced materials to high temperature conditions, an important high temperature effect called Active Element Effect, and many high temperature coatings and their behavior.

Edited by A S Khanna from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, "High Temperature Corrosion" is on sale in major bookstores, including Amazon, and retails for US$115 / £83. For more information on the book, please visit
