Overview

Phase diagrams are "maps" materials scientists often use to design new materials. They define what compounds and solutions are formed and their respective compositions and amounts when several elements are mixed together under a certain temperature and pressure. This monograph is the most comprehensive reference book on experimental methods for phase diagram determination. It covers a wide range of methods that have been used to determine phase diagrams of metals, ceramics, slags, and hydrides.

* Extensive discussion on methodologies of experimental measurements and data assessments
• Written by experts around the world, covering both traditional and combinatorial methodologies
• A must-read for experimental measurements of phase diagrams
