Description

Cutting edge high temperature materials include high temperature superconductors, solid oxide fuel cells, thermoelectric materials and ultrahigh temperature construction materials (including metals, cermets and ceramics) and have applications in key areas such as energy, transportation and space technologies.

This book  introduces the concepts which underpin research into these critical materials including thermodynamics, kinetics and various physical, chemical and modelling techniques with a focus on practical “how to” methods and covers:

  • Introduction to High Temperature Research
  • Basic Design of High Temperature Furnaces
  • Temperature Measurement
  • Radiation Pyrometry
  • Refractory Materials in the Laboratory
  • Vacuum in Theory and Practice
  • The Design of Vacuum Furnaces and Thermobalances

With highly detailed instrument illustrations and an emphasis on the control and measurement of the fundamental properties of temperature, pressure and mass, High Temperature Experiments in Chemistry and Materials Science provides a practical reference on high temperature measurements, for researchers, advanced students and those working in academic or industrial laboratories.

  • Introduction to High Temperature Research
  • Basic Design of High Temperature Furnaces
  • Temperature Measurement
  • Radiation Pyrometry
  • Refractory Materials in the Laboratory
  • Vacuum in Theory and Practice
  • The Design of Vacuum Furnaces and Thermobalances
