Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 8 covers topics on the fundamental properties and characterization of materials, ranging from simple solids to complex heterophase systems. The book discusses the equations of motion of a dislocation and interactions with phonons; the growth, structure, and mechanical properties of bicrystals; and the stability of eutectic microstructures at elevated temperatures. The text also describes segregation in freezing alloys and intermediately ordered systems. Professional scientists and engineers, as well as graduate students in materials science and associated fields will find the book invaluable.
