"Wettability at High Temperatures" does so on the basis of a detailed exposition of underlying fundamentals, both theoretical and experimental. Indeed, the fact that at elevated temperature "everything reacts with everything" has particularly strong consequences in capillarity, because atomic species can, even at minute concentrations and with limited mobility, segregate and completely alter capillary equilibria. Coverage then dives in great detail into the specifics of the principal systems of interest, and then focusses on brazing, a process which relies nearly entirely on elevated temperature capillarity. In addition, this book provides a wealth of data, and as such represents not only a valuable introduction to the field, but a working tool for the practicing scientist and engineer.
The authors count among the top-most present contributors to this question. Dr. Nicholas is a well recognized expert of capillary phenomena in materials processing, and of the brazing process in particular. We owe to Drs. Drevet and Eustathopoulos much of what is the current state of advancement of basic research on wetting at elevated temperature, including the high standards that now exist in experim
