- Author: Paul Holloway;P. N. Vaidyanathan
This book provides an introduction to surface and interface analysis techniques for specialists and educated professional metallurgists or scientists. This book illustrates with case histories how characterization techniques can be used to determine important properties of metals and provides a systematic approach to the task of correlating structure and composition with properties (mechanical, chemical, and physical properties, and diffusion and phase transformations in metals.) This is a useful reference book for practical engineers and scientists who want to learn what can be accomplished with modern analytical techniques, or who want troubleshooting advice on problems involving the structure/property relationships in metal and alloys.
