A Handbook of Lattice Spacing and Structures of Metals and Alloys is a 12-chapter handbook that describes the structures and lattice spacings of all binary and ternary alloys. This book starts with an introduction to the accurate determination of structure and lattice spacings. The subsequent chapters deal with the role of structure determination and lattice spacings in alloy formation, as well as the application of this determination to the equilibrium diagram examination. These topics are followed by discussions on the correlation of lattice spacing and magnetic property, including X-ray crystallographic data for those structures allotted a “Strukturbericht” type. The remaining chapters contain table lists information about the crystal structures, densities, and expansion coefficients of the elements. These chapters also present further information about lattice spacing and structure determination on metals in alphabetical order. This book is of value to physicists and metallurgists.
