Phase Transformations in Metals and Alloys, Third Edition provides a comprehensive overview of specific types of phase transformations, supplemented by practical case studies of engineering alloys. This new edition now addresses computer-aided calculation of phase diagrams, which has undergone major changes in recent years. It also expands treatment of bainite transformation, nucleation, metallic glasses, steel, and Scheil's additivity rule for appreciating transformations during continuous cooling. Adding new case studies, detailed examples, and exercises drawn from current applications, this text features an easy-to-follow style that integrates basic and advanced material, making it ideal for newcomers to the field.
