The Thermophysical Properties of Metallic Liquids: Volume 1 — Fundamentals

Takamichi Iida and Roderick I. L. Guthrie


The main purpose of materials science and engineering is to make the best use of all the elements in the periodic table. This leads to the effective use and conservation of natural resources. For this purpose, in any liquid metallic processing operation, accurate data for the thermophysical properties of all metallic liquids (i.e. liquid metals, semimetals, and semiconductors) is needed. However, in addition, a clear understanding of the essence of their thermophysical properties, based on these data, is indispensable. The second volume continues from the first volume to provide explanations f ... More

Keywords: thermophysical properties, metallic liquids, velocity of sound, theory of liquids, density, sound velocity, surface tension, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity
