Structural Intermetallics and Intermetallic Matrix Composites, Hardback Book

Structural Intermetallics and Intermetallic Matrix Composites Hardback

Part of the IIT Kharagpur Research Monograph Series series


Fills a Prominent Gap in a Significant Area of IntermetallicsPresenting a comprehensive overview of structural intermetallics (the most important class of intermetallics), Structural Intermetallics and Intermetallic Matrix Composites is a reference written with the beginning student as well as the practicing professional in mind.

Utilizing the author's more than two decades of experience working on silicides and teaching a course on advanced materials, this text addresses the fundamental aspects related to structure, mechanical behavior, and the oxidation resistance of selected intermetallics and their composites.

In addition to covering the structure and properties of selected intermetallics, the text places special emphasis on composite intermetallics and specifically focuses on select aluminides and silicides.

It reviews existing literature on select structural silicides and aluminides, considers possible applications on the basis of the attractive properties of aluminides and silicides, and also factors in future directions of research.

Fundamental aspects include thermodynamic principles, phase diagrams and crystal structures, processing methods, deformation and fracture mechanisms of ordered intermetallics, and oxidation behavior with mechanisms for protection against environmental degradation.

Comprising nine chapters, this text:Explores the state-of-the-art accomplishments in this areaConsiders further research related to the topicExamines further innovations applying these materialsAn up-to-date introduction to structural intermetallics, Structural Intermetallics and Intermetallic Matrix Composites helps readers grasp the complexities of the structure of intermetallics and their effect on various physical and mechanical properties.

It also highlights the recent state of development in the field.
