Although the present edition ofFundamentals of Creep in Metals and Alloysremains broadly up to date for metals, there are a range of improvements and updates that are either desirable, or required, in order to ensure that the book continues to meet the needs of researchers and scholars in the general area of creep plasticity. Besides updating the areas currently covered in the second edition with recent advances, the third edition will broaden its scope beyond metals and alloys to include ceramics, covalent solids, minerals and polymers, thus addressing the fundamentals of creep inallbasic classes of materials.

  • Numerous line drawings with consistent format and units allow easy comparison of the behavior of a very wide range of materials
  • Transmission electron micrographs provide direct insight into the basic microstructure of metals deforming at high temperatures
  • Extensive literature review of about 1000 references provides an excellent overview of the field
