Formation mechanisms of keying or pegging yttrium oxide and increased plasticity of alumina scale on FeCrAlY

  • J. Nowok


Formation of Keying clusters is presented in conjuction with its effects on the adherence of the alumina scale and nonuniform stress distribution in the scale. In addition, the specific nature of point defects and various aspects of scale plasticity are considered with respect to their role on the oxidation behavior and mechanism.
