Abstract : The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on CORROSION-DRY was held at COLBY SWYER 1 from 7/20/97 thru 7/25/97. The Conference was well attended with 125 participants. The attendees represented the spectrum of endeavor in this field coming from academia, industry, and government laboratories, both U.S. and foreign scientists, senior researchers young investigators, and students. In designing the formal speakers program, emphasis was placed on current unpublished research and discussion of the future target areas in this field. There was a conscious effort to stimulate lively discussion about the key issues in the field today. Time for formal presentations was limited in the interest of group discussions. In order that more scientists could communicate their most recent results, poster presentation time was scheduled. The conference is focused on recent advances in understanding the fundamentals of oxidation/corrosion of oxidation-resistant alloys and ceramics, with emphasis on their role in high-temperature applications. Individual sessions ar Oxidation of Non-metallic Materials, Stress in Oxide Scales, Oxidation of TiAl, Thermal Barrier Coatings I, Thermal Barrier Coatings II, Internal Oxidation, Interfacial Processes, High Temperature Corrosion Resistance of Chromia-Formers Interface Instability in Ternary Systems.
