Thermodynamics, Phase Diagrams and Thermodynamic Modeling of Solutions
Auteur : Pelton Arthur D.
Thermodynamics, Phase Diagrams and Thermodynamic Modeling of Solutions provides readers with the understanding of thermodynamics and phase equilibria required to make full and efficient use of these tools. As well, experts involved in developing thermodynamic databases will be provided with a comprehensive reference text of the solution models currently in use.
- Rigorous and complete development of thermodynamics aimed at readers who already have had a basic course in chemical thermodynamics. Several problem sets on the fundamentals.Provides readers with a thorough review of the fundamentals of thermodynamics.Phase Rule (and thermodynamics in general) presented from a novel viewpoint with an emphasis on understanding general phase diagrams.Provides an in-depth understanding of phase equilibria
- The description of phase diagrams will start with classical temperature-composition diagrams and the classical thermodynamic description. General phase diagrams and the full general thermodynamic development will be presented in later chapters.Readers with only a rudimentary knowledge of phase diagrams will receive a complete grounding. Experts can proceed directly to the advanced chapters
- Part I on thermodynamics and phase diagrams can stand alone for those not interested in Part II (solution modeling).Can be seen as "two books in one", although most readers will be interested in both parts. Can be used as a text for a graduate course on thermodynamics and phase diagrams, or on solution modeling, or on both.Several types of phase diagrams (paraequilibrium, solidus projections, first-melting projections, Scheil diagrams, enthalpy diagrams, ....) presented for the first time in a text
- Will be the most complete treatise on current solution modeling
- Nearly all phase diagrams in the book will be thermodynamically calculated and will be diagrams for actual systems.The practical applications of the subject will be underscored

Dr. Pelton received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Dep’t. of Metallurgy and Materials Science at the University of Toronto (PhD in 1970). Following post-doctoral studies at the Technical University in Clausthal, Germany and at MIT, he joined the faculty of the Ecole Polytechnique in the Dep’t. of Materials Engineering in 1973. Dr. Pelton has co-authored over 250 technical papers and 16 book chapters, including the chapter on Phase Diagrams in “Physical Metallurgy 3rd and 4th editions (Elsevier), and on Thermodynamics and Phase Diagrams in the 5th edition. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the Canadian Academy of Engineering and the American Society for Materials. He is a recipient of the AIME Extraction & Processing Distinguished Lecturer Award, the Gibbs Triangle Award of the international Calphad (Calculation of Phase Diagrams) group, the J. Willard Gibbs Phase Equilibria Award of ASM and the Hume-Rothery Prize (for contributions to the study of phase equilibria) of the Institute of Materials (UK) as well as other national and international awards. His primary field of interest is chemical thermodynamics. He is co-founder of the FactSage thermodynamic database computing system which has approximately 900 users in 45 countries.
