Superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics have a high melting point, high strength and high-temperature creep resistance, a low thermal expansion coefficient and good corrosion resistance. They are widely used in metallurgical, chemical, aerospace, nuclear reactor and other extreme environments. During high-temperature services, superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics are exposed to extremely harsh high-temperature environments and must endure mechanical and thermal loads, high temperature oxidation, erosion, corrosion, etc. Therefore, high stress is concentrated at the defect site, especially near the phase interface; this thermal expansion stress drives the nucleation and propagation of cracks. At the same time, friction, oxidation and corrosion aggravate crack propagation and material failure, which pose a catastrophic threat to high-temperature components. Therefore, the characterization, understanding and strengthening and corrosion protection of superalloys and ultrahigh temperature ceramics are critical. This Special Issue focuses on second-phase enhancement, surface coating technology, high-temperature corrosion, wear, erosion and protection in superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics.
The corrosion of superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics remains a major technological and economical challenge as the service life and stability of metal and ceramic components are often affected by environmental corrosion. During high-temperature services, superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics are exposed to extremely harsh high-temperature environments and must endure mechanical and thermal loads, high-temperature oxidation, erosion, corrosion, etc. Therefore, the characterization, understanding and strengthening and corrosion protection of superalloys and ultrahigh-temperature ceramics are critical.
