Sample content of the static block - primary column bottom.

The characterization of materials is a key to determining the success, and at time failure, of the development of new and advanced materials. So, the study of materials characterization deals with understanding of the microstructure, chemical composition, the phases, and precipitates present in a material. The explorations of the crystal structure of elements in the phases and precipitates, the grain boundaries, and the matrix also form a part of this material study. Over the last decades, a number of techniques and tools have been developed to characterize materials in all the above aspects. This book, therefore, provides a direct description and fundamentals of the well-known characterization techniques based on X-rays, electrons and ions, to serve as a first-hand resource to students, faculty, and researchers, alike.



Features : Indispensable text for undergraduate and postgraduate students in metallurgy, material science, and mechanical, production and automotive engineering Clear-cut description, diagrams, examples and applications to support theories and techniques Operational instructions of instruments and specimen handling are provided in great detail Review questions at the end of each chapter Key notes in “Appendices” for quick recapitulation of analytical techniques Useful reference for practicing engineers and analysts dealing with selection and failure analysis of materials, as well as for researchers to understand the principles and operations of modern analytical instruments used in materials characterization.
