Phase Diagrams - Understanding the Basics (ASM, 2012) is one of our Knovel eBooks in general engineering. It describes to basic principles and uses of alloy phase diagrams, covering both liquid and solid reactions. Written so that non-metallurgists can follow, the book also includes many illustrations to enhance understanding. Chapters include an introduction to the topic as well as discussions of phase diagrams in relation to solid solutions, thermodynamics, isomorphous alloys, eutectic alloys, peritectic alloys, monotectic alloys, and more.
We have Knovel eBooks available online in the fields of biochemistry, biology and biotechnology, general engineering; and chemistry and chemical engineering. They can be accessed by students, faculty, and staff of Christian Brothers University.
