  1. Grain Boundary Migration in Metals

    Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Applications, Second Edition

    By Gunter Gottstein, Lasar S. Shvindlerman

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    A major goal of materials science is to create new engineering materials and optimize their cost and performance. Understanding how adjacent materials behave at their borders is an essential part of this process. Grain boundaries are the longest-known crystal defects, but although they were...

  2. Corrosion Science and Technology, Second Edition

    By David E.J. Talbot, James D.R. Talbot

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    Despite their efforts, industries continue to lose millions of dollars every year to the destructive effects of corrosion on both structures and equipment. A large part of the problem is that diagnosing its causes and developing strategies to avoid corrosion depend on the application of principles...

  4. Image Analysis

    Applications in Materials Engineering

    By Leszek Wojnar

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    Minimizing theoretical background and mathematical formalism, Image Analysis provides basic principles of image acquisition, enhancement, measurements, and interpretation in a very simple form, using an approach toward applications and properties of available tools. The singular study lists...

  5. Corrosion Science and Technology

    By David E.J. Talbot, James D.R. Talbot

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    Although they often appear to be permanent, metals are unstable in their service environments and are susceptible to degradation by corrosion. Corrosion occurs when protective mechanisms have been overlooked, break down, or have been exhausted, leaving the metal vulnerable to attack by hostile...

  6. The Quantitative Description of the Microstructure of Materials

    By Krzysztof Jan Kurzydlowski, Brian Ralph

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    This book, the product of a deep collaboration between the two authors, strikes a balance between the traditional approach and newly emerging techniques used to obtain a quantitative description of the microstructure of materials.The Quantitative Description of the Microstructure of Materials has a...

  7. The Extraction and Refining of Metals

    By Colin Bodsworth

    Series: Materials Science & Technology

    The Extraction and Refining of Metals provides a novel approach to the science and technology of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal production. Rather than the traditional treatment in which one metal at a time is considered, this new approach, which examines several metals at a time, reveals more...
