Fe-Al-based materials are an economic alternative to Cr-Ni steels and Ni-based superalloys for structural applications. They are also the basis of corrosion- and wear-resistant coatings and magnetic materials, e.g. Heusler alloys. In addition, they are applied in catalysis and hydrogen generation and storage, and in many systems quasicrystalline phases form, which exhibit remarkable properties. Fe-Al-based materials have been of interest for structural applications for more than a century. Materials based on intermetallic phases can offer a high ratio of strength in relation to their density. Therefore, specifically the Al-containing intermetallics with Ni, Ti, and Fe are of interest in the view of energy saving aspects. Knowledge of Fe-Al-X systems plays also an important role in the development of various coatings.
The current compendium critically evaluates and summarizes all the available knowledge on phase equilibria, phase transformations, crystallographic details of the phases and their known properties and applications of 22 Fe-Al-X ternary systems and the Fe-Al binary system, which are important for industrial applications.
The system reports are arranged in the alphabetical order and have a standard format, allowing easy access to the required data. The following information is provided: liquidus projections, isothermal and vertical sections, quasibinary sections, reaction schemes, invariant equilibria, crystallographic data, thermodynamic data and materials properties, accompanied by short descriptive texts and extensive references.
