Methods for Phase Diagram Determination
- Ji-Cheng Zhao, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA
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.
This book is suitable for researchers in industrial and national laboratories, universities and graduate students majoring in materials science and engineering. It is also suitable for phase diagram researchers, solid state physicists and inorganic chemists.
