Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 1 covers the fundamental properties and characterization of materials, ranging from simple solids to complex heterophase systems. The book discusses the energy, kinetics, and topography of interfaces; the fracture of a wide range of composites; and the theory of the propagation of elastic waves through composites. The text also describes the complex nature of substitutional-interstitial interactions in bcc alloys; the dynamics of quantitative metallography; and the science and technology of chemical vapor deposition. Professional scientists and engineers, as well as graduate students in materials science and associated fields will find the book invaluable.
