About this Book

Derived from the highly acclaimed series Materials Science and Technology, this book covers the properties as well as the present and emerging applications of intermetallics. Mechanical characteristics, microstructure as well as the environmental influence on intermetallics are treated in depth. In addition, the prospects and risks inherent in materials development as well as typical applications of intermetallics are critically assessed.

It is the author's aim to provide the basis for understanding the physical mechanisms, which influence the properties of the materials and ultimately their areas of application.

Materials covered include:
Titanium Aluminides and Related Phases * Nickel Aluminides and Related Phases * Iron Aluminides and Related Phases * Cu-Base Phases * A15 Phases * Laves Phases * Rare-Earth Compound * Beryllides * Silicides

Intermetallics is a valuable source of information for researchers and graduate students working in materials science, metallurgy, condensed-matter physics, and engineering.
