HTCPM 2016 - 9th International Symposium on High-Temperature Corrosion and Protection of Materials

The goal of this international symposium is to capture the current research and scientific understanding related to high temperature corrosion so as to reflect the interests of the major industries dependent on the successful application of high-temperature materials.  Thus, contributions are welcomed that address both current practical issues and the underlying science and technology.  The main industrial fields addressed in this symposium are:

  1. Aero- and Land-based gas turbines
  2. Reciprocating (diesel) engines
  3. Air- and oxy-fired boilers, incinerators, burners
  4. H2 and syngas production, coal gasification
  5. Fuel cells
  6. Heat exchangers, gas separation & cleanup
  7. Process industries (chemical, steel, glass, pulp & paper)
  8. Nuclear industry

The major themes of the symposium are intended to raise issues where the results can be translated for implementation by industry and where industrial feedback can provide guidance to assist further research, for example:

  • Corrosion mechanism in aggressive environments
  • Carburization and metal dusting
  • Mixed oxidants
  • Steam and water vapor
  • Supercritical fluids
  • Hot corrosion
  • Corrosion-mechanical loading interactions
  • High temperature materials development
  • Coatings (including thermal barriers)
  • Alloys and intermetallics
  • Ceramics and composites
  • Modeling and lifetime predictions
  • Fundamental studies: diffusion, defects, phase transformations
  • Advances in relevant characterization techniques
