Modern Physical Metallurgy describes, in a very readable form, the fundamental principles of physical metallurgy and the basic techniques for assessing microstructure. This book enables you to understand the properties and applications of metals and alloys at a deeper level than that provided in an introductory materials course. The eighth edition of this classic text has been updated to provide a balanced coverage of properties, characterization, phase transformations, crystal structure, and corrosion not available in other texts, and includes updated illustrations along with extensive new real-world examples and homework problems. Key Features: ? Renowned coverage of metals and alloys from two of the world?s leading metallurgy researchers and educators ? Covers new materials characterization techniques, including scanning tunneling microscope (STM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and nanoidenfication. ? Provides a more thorough coverage of characterization, mechanical and physical properties, crystal defects, corrosion and surface treatment of any general physical metallurgy book ? New worked examples with real-world applications, case studies, extensive homework exercises, new illustrations, and a full online solutions manual and image bank.
