This text is intended for a second level course in Materials Science and Engineering. Crystal symmetry including quasi-crystals and fractals, review phase diagrams, diffusion including treatment of diffusion in two-phase systems, solidification, solid-state phase transformations, amorphous materials, and bonding in greater detail than is usual in introductory Materials Science courses. Additional subject material, includes stereographic projection, Miller- Bravais index system for hexagonal crystals, microstructural analysis, the free-energy basis for phase diagrams, surfaces, sintering, order-disorder, liquid crystals, molecular morphology, magnetic materials, porous materials, and shape memory and super elastic materials. The final chapter includes useful hints in making engineering calculations. Each chapter has problems, references and notes of interest.
