Microstructural characterization of materials

Author: D G Brandon; Wayne D Kaplan
Publisher: Chichester, England : John Wiley, ©2008.
Series: Quantitative software engineering series.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
"The book is an introduction to the expertise involved in assessing the microstructure of engineering materials and to the experimental methods used for this purpose. Similar to the first edition, this second edition of Microstructural Characterization of Materials explores the methodology of materials characterization under the three headings of crystal structure, microstructural morphology, and microanalysis."  Read more...
