    Introduction to Diffusion

    Diffusion is the migration of atoms. We deal here with the elementary rules of diffusion, including the first and second Fick's laws, solutions to these laws and structure dependent diffusion in the solid-state.Slide:

    Thermodynamics of Diffusion

    by Admin Added 50 Views / 0 Likes

    In the first approximation, diffusion is assumed to be driven by gradients in concentration. More accurately, it is driven by gradients in the free energy and there are circumstances in which it can occur against a concentration gradient. The theory for t

    Kinetics: Diffusion-Controlled Growth

    by Admin Added 27 Views / 0 Likes

    The one-dimensional growth of a particle, controlled by the rate at which solute diffuses in the parent phase ahead of the product-parent interface, is described. Equations are derived for the simple case of the growth of ferrite from austenite in a binar

    Interface Response Functions

    by Admin Added 31 Views / 0 Likes

    There are many processes which can limit the motion of an interface. For example, the diffusion of solute ahead of the interface, the transfer of atoms across the interface, etc. The functions describing each of these is known as an interface response fun

    Overall Transformation Kinetics

    by Admin Added 34 Views / 0 Likes

    Phase transformations in the solid state usually occur by a process of nucleation and growth. The theories for these processes are well established. Overall transformation kinetics deals with the evolution of volume fraction of product phase as a function

    Simultaneous transformations: overall transformation kinetics

    by Admin Added 32 Views / 0 Likes

    It is often the case that two different phases grow at the same time to consume the same parent phase. In this lecture, Professor Harry Bhadeshia explains a modification of Avrami theory to tackle simultaneous transformations.More information onhttp://www

    Creep Resistant Steels

    Steels which can serve at very high temperatures ( in excess of 873 K) with tolerable oxidation and sustained strength are of immense use in the efficient generation of electricity. This lecture, delivered at Cambridge University, is about the design of s

    Kinetics: Phase Field Modelling

    by Admin Added 23 Views / 0 Likes

    In the phase-field method, the state of the entire microstructure isrepresented continuously by a single variable known as the "orderparameter" (phi). For example, phi=1, phi=0 and phi 1 represent the precipitate, matrix and interface respectively. Thelat

    Elementary Thermodynamic Functions

    by Admin Added 28 Views / 0 Likes

    Thermodynamic functions such as heat capacity, internal energy, enthalpy, entropy, free energy are introduced. These concepts are important in many aspects of life, but are described here in the context of phase equilibria.The content should be generally

    Thermodynamic Equilibrium between Solutions

    by Admin Added 34 Views / 0 Likes

    A solution is an intimate mixture of components. For example, salt (NaCl) dissolved in water is a solution. Another example is a solid solution of carbon in iron. When two solutions are in contact, they may reach equilibrium. This lecture is about equilib

    Thermodynamic Models of Solutions

    by Admin Added 45 Views / 0 Likes

    An ideal solution is one in which the atoms are randomly mixed at all temperatures, whereas in a regular solution the enthalpy of mixing is finite, so that there is a tendency to order or unmix at low temperatures. These and other solution models are cons

    Thermodynamics of Mechanical Alloying

    by Admin Added 31 Views / 0 Likes

    Mechanical alloying is a process in which a metallic solid solution can be produced without melting the constituents. The process begins with large lumps which are attrited into ever smaller particles until there is mixing on an atomic scale. In this lect

    Computer Calculation of Phase Diagrams

    by Admin Added 42 Views / 0 Likes

    Thermodynamic models of solutions can be used together with data to calculate phase diagrams. These diagrams reveal, for a given set of parameters (such as temperature, pressure, magnetic field), the phases which are thermodynamically stable and in equili

    Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes

    by Admin Added 42 Views / 0 Likes

    The thermodynamics of irreversibleprocesses deals with systems which are not at equilibrium but are nevertheless stationary. The theory in effect uses thermodynamics to deal with kinetic phenomena.The content should be generally useful to scientists. This

    Thermodynamics: Quasichemical Solution Model

    by Admin Added 33 Views / 0 Likes

    A quasichemical solution model deals properly with a finite enthalpy of mixing, in that the distribution of atoms is NOT assumed to be random. In contrast, a regular solution model is based on a finite enthalpy of mixing but nevertheless assumes incorrect
