1. “Phase Equilibria, Phase Diagrams and Phase Transformations: Their Thermodynamic Basis” by Mats Hillert

“Phase Equilibria, Phase Diagrams and Phase Transformations: Their Thermodynamic Basis” Book Review: This book is designed for both UG and PG students of material science and engineering. Various advanced aspects of material science and its methods are covered in this book. With the help of mathematical models scientists are able to analyse and make models of complex systems and understand their material behaviour.in order to use it accurately and interpret it correctly one should have a deep knowledge on thermodynamic principles of phase equilibrium, transformation and state. It covers first principles of thermodynamics in respect to the latest computer applications. This book stresses on the properties of phase diagrams and theories on chemical equilibria and chemical changes are also covered. Some of the important topics that are covered in this book are irreversible thermodynamics, extremum principles and the thermodynamics of surfaces and interfaces. Apart from theory, graphical representations on equilibrium conditions, the state of systems at equilibrium and the changes at equilibrium are also covered in this book. At the end of every chapter various illustrations, examples, calculations are also provided.

3. “Solid State Transformation and Heat Treatment” by Alain Hazotte

“Solid State Transformation and Heat Treatment” Book Review: This book covers the details on changes that occur at microscopic level and during various heat treatment processes. Changes in the solid state produce the final microstructures of material. The desired qualities of the material can be obtained only when it is treated with the right processes and then it can be produced on a large scale. In view of the latest EUROMAT symposium all the important techniques and researches are covered in this book. Some of the topics that are covered in this book are Modelling precipitation, eutectoid transformation and theory of TTT/ CT curves, Phase dissolution during heating; Rapid solid state transformation phenomena: massive transformation, bainite formation, martensite including crack formation of ceramics, Crystallisation of glass (metals, polymers, ceramics),Recrystallisation and so on.

4. “Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels” by John C Lippold and Damian J Kotecki

“Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels” Book Review: This book covers information on the welding processes and problems that arise while welding stainless steel. The book stresses on the basic principles of metallurgy which controls the transformation of the microstructure and property of stainless steels including its types (martensitic, ferric, austenitic, duplex, and precipitation hardening). The book also covers the changes that have been made in this feild over the long period of time. Brief information on stainless steel and its uses and also the problems that occur while welding stainless steel is covered.

5. “Solidification and Solid-State Transformations of Metals and Alloys” by Maria Jose Quintana Hernandez and Jose Antonio Pero-Sanz
