Phase Transformations, Volume 12: Examples from Titanium and Zirconium Alloys

The terms phase transitions and phase transformations are often used in an interchangeable manner in the metallurgical literature.

In this book, transformations driven by pressure changes, radiation and deformation and those occurring in nanoscale multilayers are brought to the fore. Order-disorder transformations, many of which constitute very good examples of continuous transformati
