This classic textbook is the definitive introduction to the thermodynamic behavior of materials systems. Written as a basic text for advanced undergraduates and first year graduate students in metallurgy, metallurgical engineering, ceramics, or materials science, the Fifth Edition presents the underlying thermodynamic principles of materials and their plethora of applications.The book is also of proven interest to working professionals in need of a reference or refresher course. End-of-chapter problems grow in complexity over the course of the book, first isolating particular concepts and allowing students to apply one newly developed skill at a time. Problems in chapters 10-14 then require students to combine two or more 'basic' concepts to find a solution. New worked examples further enhance the presentation of fundamental material in the first six chapters. Other new features include the inclusion of numerical explanations for the expansion of ideal gases and a detailed explanation of acetylene combustion. The book provides the fundamental framework for understanding the calculations in technical literature, while preserving the students' responsibility as autonomous problem solvers.

This thermodynamics text is specifically designed for students on a first course in thermodynamics on a materials science or related degree. Treatment is general, and the book could also be used on chemistry, physics and engineering courses. It adopts an approach based upon a general criterion for equilibrium (developed directly from the law of thermodynamics), which yields a general strategy for obtaining conditions for equilibrium. This strategy is applied to a collection of systems of increasing complexity and sophistication to derive in each case the conditions for equilibrium - working equations for solving practical problems in thermodynamics are shown to be restatements of these equilibrium conditions. The level of discussion is rigorous, but no steps are ommited in establishing the conclusions. This provides the student with the knowledge to handle the thermodynamics of the most complex kinds of systems; in addition, the presentation applies to all classes of materials including applications to ceramics, metals, polymers and electronic materials. A solutions manual is also available (0-07-016314-6).
