Alloy phase diagrams are useful to metallurgists, materials engineers, and materials scientists who wish to: Develop new alloys for specific applications; Fabricate these alloys into useful configurations; Design and control heat treatment procedures for specific alloys that will produce the required mechanical, physical, and microstructural

From the thermodynamic basis for phase equilibria, various types of phase diagram are developed and their characteristics described. The following types of diagram are distinguished: state diagram, property diagram, potential phase diagram, molar phase diagram, and phase diagrams with a mixture of variables.

The basic principles, construction, interpretation, and use of alloy phase diagrams are clearly described with ample illustrations for all important liquid and solid reactions. This well-written text is for non-metallurgists and anyone seeking a quick refresher on an essential tool of modern metallurgy.

Alloy phase diagrams are useful to metallurgists, materials engineers, and materials scientists in four major areas: (1) development of new alloys for specific applications, (2) fabrication of these alloys into useful configurations, (3) design and control of heat treatment procedures for specific alloys that will produce the required mechanical,

Thermodynamics is a branch of physics and chemistry that covers a wide field, from the atomic to macroscopic scale. In materials science, thermodynamics is a powerful tool for understanding and solving problems.
The 115 ternary systems presented in this edition have been selected using the ternaries in the first edition as a starting point, retaining many of them, and adding others based on frequency of citation in the ASM Alloy Phase Diagram Database.

One of the few papers on thee metallurgical applications of topology to come from the English-speaking countries is that by Smith'! Although dealing mainly with the shape of grains, Smith includes a brief reference to the topology of phase diagrams.
