Over the last forty years a wide range of surface coatings have been developed to address the surface stability and thermal insulation of materials used in the gas turbine section of aero, industrial and land-based power generation equipment. High Temperature Surface Engineering, the Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference in the Series ‘Engineering the Surfaces’, reviews the surfacing technologies appropriate to oxidation, corrosion and thermal protection. Factors which underpin their choice for any given application are discussed in the proceedings. This highlights the importance of developing representative mechanical and physical test methods to elucidate coating degradation modes as an aid to establishing coating systems with improved engineering performance. During the organisation of the conference and in the compiling of this book we have been privileged to work with many of the leading specialists in the field of High Temperature Surface Engineering and it is our hope that this book will be a valuable reference guide for Engineers and Material Scientists.
