CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A timely, applications-driven text in thermodynamics
Materials Thermodynamics provides both students and professionals with the
in-depth explanation they need to prepare for the real-world application of
thermodynamic tools. Based upon an actual graduate course taught by the
authors, this class-tested text covers the subject with a broader, more
industry-oriented lens than can be found in any other resource available. This
Reflects changes rapidly occurring in society at large—from the impact of
computers on the teaching of thermodynamics in materials science and
engineering university programs to the use of approximations of higher order
than the usual Bragg-Williams in solution-phase modeling
Makes students aware of the practical problems in using thermodynamics
Emphasizes that the calculation of the position of phase and chemical
equilibrium in complex systems, even when properly defined, is not easy
Relegates concepts like equilibrium constants, activity coefficients, free
energy functions, and Gibbs-Duhem integrations to a relatively minor role
Includes problems and exercises, as well as a solutions manual
This authoritative text is designed for students and professionals in
materials science and engineering, particularly those in physical metallurgy,
metallic materials, alloy design and processing, corrosion, oxidation,
coatings, and high-temperature alloys.
