A Selection of Books and Reference Literature in English listed in chronological order for use as resource in teaching of HTMC topics at University
Note: This general list of references arranged in chronological order constitutes an Appendix to the document. Most of the listed publicatons have been available to the TGC off the shelf over the decades. Many old volumes might not be at present available at institutions and libraries, in particular conference proceedings. Nevertheless those listed here, the conference proceedings volumes in particular and, amomg these, primarily the IUPAC sponsored HTMC conferences, show how the areas of research in HTMC evolved over the decades. In the list of topics, appended to each topic a selected bibliography is given whereas possible including more recent publications and books presumably more readily available.
Textbooks and Contributed Volumes
N. Birks, F.S.Pettit, G.H. Meier, "Introduction to High Temperature Oxidation of Metals”, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2006, pp. 272.
In this book the intent is to introduce the subject of high temperature oxidation of metals and alloys to students and to professional engineers whose works demands familiarity with the subject.The emphasis of the book is placed on supplying an understanding of the basic, or fundamental, processes involved in oxidation. Examples of the application of the principles described are given.
D.R. Gaskell,“Introduction to the thermodynamics of materials”, 4th edition, Taylor & Francis Kumar, New York, 2003.
An introductory text particularly written for students of materials science & engineering underlying the principles and their applicability, with worked examples. In particular, chapters 9 to 13 are relevant to the high temperature thermodynamics of materials Gupta Chiranjib, “Chemical metallurgy”, Wiley-VCH 2003, 811 pp.
