Kinetics and mechanism of the accelerated oxidation of low carbon scrap steels.
Khalafalla SE; Payne SL
Oxid Met 1973 Dec; 7(3):201-218
Mixed parabolic law determines the oxidation of steels treated with oxidation promoters. The observed kinetics are best explained with the zener diffusion model, which assumes that the activation energy for diffusion is spent in deforming the crystal lattice elastically in the vicinity of the saddle point.
