A comprehensive introduction, examining both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the subject, the book applies the theory of thermodynamics to a broad range of materials; from metals, ceramics and other inorganic materials to geological materials. Focusing on materials rather than the underlying mathematical concepts of the subject, this book will be ideal for the non-specialist requiring an introduction to the energetics and stability of materials. Macroscopic thermodynamic properties are linked to the underlying miscroscopic nature of the materials and trends in important properties are discussed. A unique approach covering both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the subject Authors have worldwide reputations in this area Fills a gap in the market by featuring a wide range of real up-to-date examples and covering a large amount of materials

About the Book Thermodynamics of Materials, Volumes I & II goes beyond traditional texts to illustrate the applicability of thermodynamics to the specific classes of materials that are part of a curriculum in materials science and engineering. The text is written from both science and engineering perspectives so that students will be able to understand and apply the knowledge generated by scientists and communicate with and serve the needs of all engineers. In addition to a presentation based on classical thermodynamics, the text: Takes an Open System approach to the First and Second Laws.Includes a chapter on Statistical Thermodynamics that provides the background for understanding kinetic mechanisms and the behavior of polymers.Treats physical as well as chemical equilibrium to assist student understanding of phase transitions.Provides good problem sets that are thoroughly class-tested.Discusses surfaces and interfaces- an important area as electronic materials get smaller.

Chemical Thermodynamics For Metals And Materials With Cd rom For Computer aided Learning

A number of thermodynamic books claiming to be original in both presentation and approach have been published. However, thermodynamics is still a confusing subject for uninitiated students and an “easy-to-forget” one for graduate engineers. In order to solve these problems, this computer aided learning package — textbook and CD-ROM — takes a new approach.This package is unique and beneficial in that it simulates a classroom lecture: it actually writes important equations and concepts on a virtual board, underlines, draws circles, places ticks to emphasise important points, draws arrows to indicate relationships, uses colours for visual effect, erases some parts to write new lines, and even repeats some parts of the lesson to stress their importance. This realistic simulation is made possible by the employment of the multimedia capabilities of the modern-day computer. Readers are not just passively presented with thermodynamics, they can also interactively select and repeat any particular topic of interest as many times as they want. This flexibility allows readers to choose their own pace of presentation. This complementary set is in many important respects better than the books that are currently available on the subject.

Maintaining the substance that made Introduction to the Thermodynamic of Materials a perennial best seller for decades, this Sixth Edition is updated to reflect the broadening field of materials science and engineering. The new edition is reorganized into three major sections to align the book for practical coursework, with the first (Thermodynamic Principles) and second (Phase Equilibria) sections aimed at use in a one semester undergraduate course. The third section (Reactions and Transformations) can be used in other courses of the curriculum that deal with oxidation, energy, and phase transformations. The book is updated to include the role of work terms other than PV work (e.g., magnetic work) along with their attendant aspects of entropy, Maxwell equations, and the role of such applied fields on phase diagrams. There is also an increased emphasis on the thermodynamics of phase transformations and the Sixth Edition features an entirely new chapter 15 that links specific thermodynamic applications to the study of phase transformations. The book also features more than 50 new end of chapter problems and more than 50 new figures.

Metallurgical Thermodynamics, as well as its modified version, Thermodynamics of Materials, forms a core course in metallurgical and materials engineering, constituting one of the principal foundations in these disciplines. Designed as an undergraduate textbook, this concise and systematically organized text deals primarily with the thermodynamics of systems involving physico-chemical processes and chemical reactions, such as calculations of enthalpy, entropy and free energy changes of processes; thermodynamic properties of solutions; chemical and phase equilibria; and thermodynamics of surfaces, interfaces and defects. The major emphasis is on high-temperature systems and processes involving metals and inorganic compounds. The many worked examples, diagrams, and tables that illustrate the concepts discussed, and chapter-end problems that stimulate self-study should enable the students to study the subject with enhanced interest.

This edition of Thermodynamics is a thoroughly revised, streamlined, and cor rected version of the book of the same title, first published in 1975. It is intended for students, practicing engineers, and specialists in materials sciences, metallur gical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry, electrochemistry, and related fields. The present edition contains many additional numerical examples and prob lems. Greater emphasis is put on the application of thermodynamics to chemical, materials, and metallurgical problems. The SI system has been used through out the textbook. In addition, a floppy disk for chemical equilibrium calculations is enclosed inside the back cover. It contains the data for the elements, oxides, halides, sulfides, and other inorganic compounds. The subject material presented in chapters III to XIV formed the basis of a thermodynamics course offered by one of the authors (R.G. Reddy) for the last 14 years at the University of Nevada, Reno. The subject matter in this book is based on a minimum number of laws, axioms, and postulates. This procedure avoids unnecessary repetitions, often encountered in books based on historical sequence of development in thermodynamics. For example, the Clapeyron equation, the van't Hoff equation, and the Nernst distribution law all refer to the Gibbs energy changes of relevant processes, and they need not be presented as radically different relationships.
