Thermodynamics of materials
About the Book Thermodynamics of Materials, Volumes I & II goes beyond traditional texts to illustrate the applicability of thermodynamics to the specific classes of materials that are part of a curriculum in materials science and engineering. The text is written from both science and engineering perspectives so that students will be able to understand and apply the knowledge generated by scientists and communicate with and serve the needs of all engineers. In addition to a presentation based on classical thermodynamics, the text: Takes an Open System approach to the First and Second Laws.Includes a chapter on Statistical Thermodynamics that provides the background for understanding kinetic mechanisms and the behavior of polymers.Treats physical as well as chemical equilibrium to assist student understanding of phase transitions.Provides good problem sets that are thoroughly class-tested.Discusses surfaces and interfaces- an important area as electronic materials get smaller.
