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. Renowned coverage of metals and alloys from one of the world's leading metallurgy educators Covers new materials characterization techniques, including scanning tunneling microscopy STM , atomic force microscopy AFM , and nanoindentation Provides the most thorough coverage of characterization, mechanical properties, surface engineering and corrosion of any textbook in its field Includes new worked examples with real-world applications, case studies, extensive homework exercises, and a full online solutions manual and image bank
