About this product
- DescriptionThe present stage of techlogical development makes new and ever more complex demands on materials that have to work under conditions of high temperature and pressure, in high vacuum, and in corrosive media. In consequence special importance is w at- tached to the refractory compounds of transition metals of groups IV to VI with such nmetals as boron, carbon, silicon, and nitro- gen. These compounds possess high melting points, great hard- ness, and high refractory and corrosion-resisting properties. The most widely used and important compounds of this type from a techlogical point of view are the carbides, which are already fairly widely used in various fields of techlogy. The present collection of papers contains the results of re- cent investigations into methods of producing high-purity carbides and also components made of the carbides and their alloys. Great attention has been paid to the study of a wide range of properties of the carbides and of alloys based on them, viz., the electro-and thermophysical, thermodynamic, mechanical, and chemical prop- erties, and also to the utilization of the carbides as wear-and abrasion-resistant materials. In contrast to many previous publications dealing with carbides, the results presented in this collection relate to the properties of carbides having a definite phase composition, corresponding to a higher degree of purity 0 In some of the contributions the physical and chemical properties of the carbides are interpreted in terms of certain solid-state models and concepts concerning the types of chemical bonding in these compounds.
