This reference book, edited by Alain Hazotte and offered by Wiley, is based on the recent EUROMAT symposium. Main subject areas include modeling, precipitation, eutectoid transformation and theory of TIT/CT curves, phase dissolution during heating, and rapid solid state transformation phenomena: bainite formation and martensite including crack formation of ceramics. Other major areas of discussion include the crystallization of glass (metals, polymers, ceramics); recrystallization; and phase transformations during service. An up-to-date survey about the latest results from scientific research in the field is also included. Info # 264 or
