Revision with unchanged content. Advancements in nanotechnology for material processing via combustion synthesis have spurred the development of superalloys that provide improved protective properties. Nano-scale reactant particles offer increased homogeneity that improve the micro-structural features and macroscopic proper-ties of the synthesized product. This book examines the use of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis as a practical alternative to the conventional methods for alloy production. Several important issues pertaining to nanostructured metallic alloys will be discussed such as: incorporation of a nano-scale particulate additive to increase performance properties, activation energy and ignition behavior of nanocomposites compared with traditional alloys, and the production of a highly porous, nanostructured, heat-insulating metallic alloy. This book delivers unique analysis and experimental design solutions needed to conceptualize and produce nanostructed intermetallics. It is an indispensible resource for students, researchers, and practicing engineers working with materials and nanotechnology.
