Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the Age of Materials, we have a large number of construction materials, including metals and their alloys. The selection of the right metallic material and its proper application is an important and responsible task in every branch of technology. There are no general rules that would allow choosing the right material for a given application in advance. The right decision should always be based on knowledge of the characteristics of the metals and their alloys, ease of processing, availability, price, and their mechanical, physical, and chemical properties.

Corrosion of metals and their alloys strongly affects many sectors of a nation’s economy. This physicochemical interaction between a metal or alloy and its environment results in changes in the properties of the metal or alloy, which may often lead to impairment of the function of the metal or alloy, the environment, or the technical system of which these form a part. Corrosion is one of the main sources of metallic material loss. It contributes to environmental pollution and poses a threat to human health. Therefore, the goal of corrosion science and engineering with a strong interdisciplinary character is to learn the mechanisms and kinetics of the gradual destruction of metallic materials as a result of the chemical or electrochemical interaction of the corrosive environment and the maximum slowdown of the process of metal and alloy returns to a thermodynamically stable state.

This Special Issue will be oriented toward all corrosion issues associated with the fundamentals of corrosion science of metals and their alloys, corrosion protection, testing to assess corrosion resistance, data collection and analysis, use of corrosion data in economic and risk analysis, in lifetime prediction, and in decision making. Subjects of interest will include the corrosion behavior of iron and low-alloy steels, corrosion-resistant steels, copper and its alloys, aluminum and its alloys, titanium and its alloys, nickel and its alloys, zinc and its alloys, and others. The development of methods to prevent and control corrosion of metals and their alloys are also of interest.

I would like to invite you with great pleasure to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

I would also like to acknowledge, first, the authors who will write the articles that will  form this new Special Issue. In addition, I would like to acknowledge the reviewers of the articles, who will carry out their work to help to maintain a high scientific level of this Special Issue.

The Oxidation Resistance of Nb-Si-Based Alloys at Intermediate and High Temperatures
Materials 2020, 13(5), 1229; https://doi.org/10.3390/ma13051229 - 09 Mar 2020
Abstract
The oxidation behavior of three Nb-Si-based alloys were evaluated at intermediate (800 °C) and high (1250 °C) temperatures for 100 h in air. At 800 °C, the Nb-24Ti-15Si-13Cr-2Al-2Hf (at. %) alloy suffered from catastrophic pest oxidation. This pest phenomenon was suppressed by the [...] Read more.
The oxidation behavior of three Nb-Si-based alloys were evaluated at intermediate (800 °C) and high (1250 °C) temperatures for 100 h in air. At 800 °C, the Nb-24Ti-15Si-13Cr-2Al-2Hf (at. %) alloy suffered from catastrophic pest oxidation. This pest phenomenon was suppressed by the addition of Sn. However, Ta addition protected the Nb-Si-based alloys from pest oxidation for a short time. At 1250 °C, Sn could enhance the oxidation resistance of Nb-Si-based alloys due to the formation of a Sn-rich layer. In addition, the oxidation mechanisms of Nb-Si-based alloys at intermediate and high temperatures were discussed. Full article

The Distribution of Li Ions in the Oxide Film Formed on Zircaloy-4 Corroded in Lithiated Water at 633 K
Materials 2020, 13(4), 873; https://doi.org/10.3390/ma13040873 - 15 Feb 2020
Abstract

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), second ion mass spectrum (SIMS) and atom probe tomography (APT) techniques are used to study the Li ion distribution in the oxide formed on the rolling surface (SN) of Zircaloy-4 corroded in lithiated water with 0.01 M LiOH at 633 K/18.6 MPa. The results showed that the Li ions segregated in the grain boundaries and subgrain boundaries in the oxide film, but nearly no Li ions were found in the oxide around the interface between the oxide and matrix. Finally, we discussed the mechanism of the LiOH influence on the corrosion resistance of Zircaloy-4. Full article
