The problem undertaken in this thesis concerns the development of a newer phase of metallurgy, namely the adaption of the strong, lightweight metal titanium to high-temperature uses. The primary objective of the investigation is to determine wheth­er the application of refractory coatings to titanium will pro­tect the metal from chemical reactions and corrosion at high temperatures.
