Metals: Thermal and Mechanical Data covers the thermal and mechanical data of metals. The book presents topics on atomic heat; phase changes and vapor pressure; and elastic constants. The text also includes topics on plasticity properties, such as stress strength, activation energy for and change in creep, and hardness; internal friction; and data for liquid metals close to the melting point including viscosity and surface tension. Engineers, technicians, physical chemists as well as specialists in metallurgy will find the book invaluable.
