Diffusion in Solids: Key Topics in Materials Science and Engineering
Appendix: Diffusion in Solids—Problems and Solutions
This chapter familiarizes readers with the use of Fick’s laws of diffusion in heat treating, coating, and other metallurgical processes. It contains worked solutions to nearly 30 problems requiring the calculation of activation energy, diffusion coefficient, concentration level, surface layer thickness, case depth, and processing time and temperature. The selected problems deal with various types of iron, steel, and nonferrous alloys and processes ranging from aluminizing, chromizing, carburizing, and plasma nitriding to hydrogen dissipation, decarburizing, and oxidation. A few diffusion problems involving single-crystal silicon are also included.
