Introduction to the Thermodynamics of Materials, Sixth Edition

Featured

David R. Gaskell, David E. Laughlin
August 18, 2017

Maintaining the substance that made Introduction to the Thermodynamic of Materials a perennial best seller for decades, this Sixth Edition is updated to reflect the broadening field of materials science and engineering. The new edition is reorganized into three major sections to align the book for p...

First Order Phase Transitions of Magnetic Materials: Broad and Interrupted Transitions

Praveen Chaddah
November 27, 2017

This book introduces new concepts in the phenomenon of 1st order phase transitions. It discusses the concept of kinetic arrest at a certain temperature, with this temperature being dependent on the second control variable (magnetic field, or pressure). It discusses interesting manifestations of...

Covering the key theories, tools, and techniques of this dynamic field, Handbook of Nanophysics: Principles and Methods elucidates the general theoretical principles and measurements of nanoscale systems. Each peer-reviewed chapter contains a broad-based introduction and enhances understanding of...

Nanophononics: Thermal Generation, Transport, and Conversion at the Nanoscale

Zlatan Aksamija
November 16, 2017

Heat in most semiconductor materials, including the traditional group IV elements (Si, Ge, diamond), III–V compounds (GaAs, wide-bandgap GaN), and carbon allotropes (graphene, CNTs), as well as emerging new materials like transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), is stored and transported by...

Handbook of Nanophysics: Nanoelectronics and Nanophotonics

Klaus D. Sattler
November 15, 2017

Many bottom-up and top-down techniques for nanomaterial and nanostructure generation have enabled the development of applications in nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.  Handbook of Nanophysics: Nanoelectronics and Nanophotonics explores important recent applications of nanophysics in the areas...

Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation

Cyril Bernard Lucas
October 23, 2017

Atomic and molecular beams are employed in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser extent, in the biological sciences. These beams enable atoms to be studied under collision-free conditions and allow the study of their interaction with other atoms, charged particles, radiation, and...

Construction Materials: Their Nature and Behaviour, Fifth Edition

Marios Soutsos, Peter Domone
October 17, 2017

This established textbook provides an understanding of materials’ behaviour through knowledge of their chemical and physical structure. It covers the main classes of construction materials: metals, concrete, other ceramics (including bricks and masonry), polymers, fibre composites, bituminous...

Nanotechnology and Energy

Kaufui V. Wong
October 06, 2017

Nanotechnology is a vibrant research area and a growing industry. The properties of nanoparticles and nanofluids are different from those of macroparticles and macrofluids because the physical and chemical properties are very dissimilar when dimensions are at the nanometer range. The first...

Viscoelastic Solids (1998)

Roderic S. Lakes
October 02, 2017

Viscoelastic Solids covers the mathematical theory of viscoelasticity and physical insights, causal mechanisms, and practical applications. The book: presents a development of the theory, addressing both transient and dynamic aspects as well as emphasizing linear viscoelasticity synthesizes the...

Nanostructured Semiconductors: Amorphization and Thermal Properties

Konstantinos Termentzidis
September 20, 2017

The book is devoted to nanostructures and nanostructured materials containing both amorphous and crystalline phases with a particular focus on their thermal properties. It is the first time that theoreticians and experimentalists from different domains gathered to treat this subject. It contains...
