This topic is concerned solely with those aspects of combustion technology where materials are exposed directly to the combustion gas. It will be considered in two parts; first, materials requirements within the combustion zone itself, and second, requirements for materials exposed to downstream combustion gases. It excludes the detailed requirements of gas turbines which are used to expand pressurised combustion gases such as in oil and coal fired combined cycle applications, and in direct coal-fired gas turbines, and also excludes gasification systems, and M.H.D.. The requirements of materials relevant to their exposure to steam, such as in power generation systems, are dealt with in section 4.1.2.
