Phase Transformations in Metals and Alloys

Front Cover
Springer US, Jan 1, 1992 - Science - 514 pages
In the ten years since this book was first published there have been many new developments in the metallurgical field. Rapidly solidified metals and glasses have come of age; new Al-Li alloys are now used in modern aircraft; microalloyed (structural) and high purity (pipeline) steels have become more sophisticated; radically new oxide-dispersed steels have ap peared; a number of new memory metals have been developed; the list could go on. In spite of this, the underlying principles governing all of these developments have obviously not changed over the years. This is really the strength of the present text book. From the beginning we aimed to speil out these principles in a nice, readable way, and one in which undergraduates could appreciate and be capable of developing for themselves. The present text is thus deliberately little changed from the original. We have, however, hopefully corrected any errors, expanded the lists of further reading, and perhaps, most importantly, included a complete set of solutions to exercises. We hope that the revised edition continues to be enjoyed and appreciated in the many Schools of Metallurgy, Materials Science and Engineering Materials we know to be using our text throughout the world. In completing this revised edition we are grateful to the many people, students and professors alike, who have written to us over the last decade.
