This reference book has been called the most up-to-date and accurate alloy phase diagram resource ever assembled in a single volume. An introductory source aimed at practicing engineers and material scientists, the text explains how to use phase diagrams. The diagrams included cover most commercial alloy systems including more than 1,000 binary diagrams and more than 300 ternary diagrams. The appendices include the melting and boiling points of the elements, their allotropic transformation and magnetic transition temperatures and their crystal structures.
Sections include: Thermodynamic Principles, Basic Definitions, Examples of Types of Diagrams, Examples of Applications of Diagrams, Processing, Alloy Design Processing, Metallography, Failure Analysis
