Summary

Factors which affect corrosion of ceramics, particularly at high temperatures, are reviewed. Cases in which there is mutual penetration of the species from one phase across a planar boundary into an adjacent phase are treated. They reveal that dissolution of a solid phase by a liquid phase diminishes penetration into the solid phase. The treatment is extended to include multicomponent systems.
