A thorough exploration of the atomic structures and properties of the essential engineering interfaces—an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and professionals

The most up-to-date, accessible guide to solid-vapor, solid-liquid, and solid-solid phase transformations, this innovative book contains the only unified treatment of these three central engineering interfaces. Employing a simple nearest-neighbor broken-bond model, Interfaces in Materials focuses on metal alloys in a straightforward approach that can be easily extended to all types of interfaces and materials. Enhanced with nearly 300 illustrations, along with extensive references and suggestions for further reading, this book provides:

  • A simple, cohesive approach to understanding the atomic structure and properties of interfaces formed between solid, liquid, and vapor phases
  • Self-contained discussions of each interface—allowing separate study of each phase transformation
  • A comparative look at the different interfaces, including atomic structure and crystallography; anisotropy, roughening, and melting; interfacial stability and segregation; continuous and ledge growth models; and atomistic modeling
  • An analysis of nearest-neighbor broken-bond results against thermodynamic and kinetic descriptions of the interfaces
  • Problem sets at the end of each chapter, emphasizing the key concepts detailed in the text

Spanning the fields of chemical, electrical and computer engineering, materials science, solid-state physics, and microscopy, Interfaces in Materials bridges a major gap in the literature of surface and interface science.

From the Publisher:

Howe presents a straightforward and intuitive approach to examine each type of interface (solid-vapor, solid-liquid, solid-solid) using a simple nearest-neighbor broken-bond model and to compare these results with those from more sophisticated many-body atomistic calculations. The atomistic treatments are then compared with thermodynamic and kinetic descriptions of the interfaces which are continuum treatments. The book mainly deals with metal atoms and utilizes the face-centered cubic crystal structure whenever possible. Most of the concepts discussed can be readily applied to other material systems including organics.

About the Author:

JAMES M. HOWE, PhD, is Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Virginia. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards for his research on transformation interfaces and electron microscopy, and his articles have appeared in such journals as Philosophical Magazine A, Acta Metallurgica et Materialia, and Ultramicroscopy.
