Activation Energy and High Temperature Oxidation Behavior of High Entropy Alloys

The properties of materials degrade at high temperature, and the corrosion of structural components such as boilers, gas turbines and tubes is a significant problem.

The high operating temperatures experienced by such components significantly lowers their durability due to enhanced corrosion rates; however, increasing the working temperature is desired to increase the efficiency within industrial plants. The state of the art materials employed limits the working temperature and simultaneously lowers the service life of the components.
