Thermodynamics of Microstructures
Thermodynamics of Microstructures provides a mathematical treatment of the microstructure of materials and the processes and mechanisms involved in its formation. The first few chapters cover the basics of thermodynamics and its application to pure substances, solutions, mixtures, and compounds. Subsequent chapters apply the principles of thermodynamics to phase diagrams and multicomponent systems, interfaces and grain boundaries, diffusion processes, ordering, nucleation, and microstructure changes. The information in the book is presented in a Q&A style and each chapter includes exercises complemented with notes, hints, and answers. The book is intended for students and practitioners in computational materials design and includes many detailed derivations, equations, and models.
