Abstract : This handbook provides researchers and development engineers with essential information on intermetallics for high temperature applications. The information will enable users to make choices by considering cost, properties, and performance for long-term use at elevated temperatures and in other adverse environmental conditions. It provides an overview of processing, structural and mechanical properties, applications, behavior and endurance at high temperature and in oxidizing conditions. It also focuses on 'pesting' disintegration, corrosion and oxidation phenomena at intermediate temperatures, corrosion embrittlement at ambient temperatures, aqueous corrosion and corrosion sensitive embrittlement properties.
