The Behavior of Reactive Ceramics in Atmospheric Environments
Using UC as an example, the reaction of highly reactive carbides was studied in different environments containing water. The aim was to elucidate the atmosphere corrosion mechanism which was found to be that of stress corrosion. Previous data were reinterpreted according to this mechanism.
