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 modern
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
Makes students aware of the practical problems in using
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
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
