Conference paper
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 5)


High temperature physical corrosion and resistant properties of refractories and their measurements are briefly discussed. Laboratory simulations of service conditions provide information about specific properties which must be advantageously chosen in combination in developing and/or selecting refractories capable of meeting actual service applications.
