Item description for Recrystallization and Grain Growth: Proceedings of the First Joint International Conference August 27-31, 2001 by Gunter Gottstein & Dmitri A. Molodov...
A vivid and comprehensible introduction to materials science. The author expands the modern concepts of metal physics to a basic theory applicable to engineering materials such as ceramics and polymers. Written for engineering students and working engineers with little previous knowledge of solid state physics, this textbook enables the reader to study more specialized and deeper-going literature of materials science. A lot of illustrative photographs, many of them Transmission Electron Microscopy images, as well as line drawings support the understanding of the by no means plain subject. Hard-to-grasp terms such as "Textures" get understandably explained - not only the phenomenon itself, but also its consequences for the material properties. This excellent book makes materials science more transparent!
