The Thermophysical Properties of Metallic Liquids: Volume 2 — Predictive Models

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) are needed. However, in addition, a clear understanding of the essence of their thermophysical properties, based on these data, is indispensable. This second volume continues from the first volume, so as to provide expla ... More

Keywords: natural resources, thermophysical properties, velocity of sound, metallic liquid, volume expansivity, evaporation enthalpy, surface tension, viscosity, self-diffusivity
