Introduction to the Thermodynamics of Materials is used universally as an introduction to the application of the thermodynamic method to understanding the behavior of materials systems.
Aimed primarily at third-year undergraduate students of metallurgy, metallurgical engineering, ceramics, or materials science, this book will also be useful to graduate students and working professionals in need of a reference or a refresher course. A solutions manual is available to qualified instructors.
NEW IN THE 4TH EDITION:
A new chapter covering Phase Diagrams for Binary Systems in Pressure-Temperature-Composition Space
Two new appendices: Exact Differential Equations and Generation of Auxiliary Functions as Legendre Transformations
A CD containing thermodynamic properties of 50 commonly used compounds. The data and descriptive material on the CD enables students to make detailed thermodynamic calculations involving materials processing....Continua
