Study of scale growth on steel substrates using electron back scatter diffraction
Research output: Contribution to journal › Conference article › peer-review
Heating of steels causes oxide layers for form on the surface of the metal. These scales have complex microstructures made up of a number of layers the composition and structure of which depend on a large number of variables e.g. temperature, time, atmosphere and alloying elements. The current study has used Electron Back Scatter Diffraction to study these complex microstructures with a view to increasing the understanding of their formation and mechanical properties during processing of steel components.
