Phase Equilibria, Phase Diagrams and Phase Transformations: Their Thermodynamic Basis / Edition 1by Mats Hillert
Pub. Date: 03/28/1998
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
his textbook treats the theoretical basis of chemical equilibria and chemical changes and emphasises the properties of phase diagrams. It represents an approach to the subject that takes into account the fact that thermodynamics can now be applied using powerful computers and databases that are readily available. Illustrative examples of thermodynamic modelling are also given, and the book contains many exercises and worked solutions. This modern text will be of value to undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and chemistry.
