The SGTE Casebook Book Description :
The Scientific Group Thermodata Europe (SGTE) is a consortium of European and American research groups developing thermodynamic databases and software to model the thermodynamic properties of metals and other materials. Understanding these properties is critical to improving the processing of metals and their performance in such areas as resistance to high-temperature corrosion. This substantially revised new edition explores both the theoretical background to thermodynamic modelling and its wide range of practical applications. These applications include the analysis of hot salt and other types of high-temperature corrosion, understanding the loss of corrosion resistance in stainless and other types of steel, the processing of high speed, low carbon and other types of steel, and the use of thermodynamics to improve the functionality of materials for microelectronics and lighting applications. The SGTE casebook will be a valuable reference for those manufacturing steels and other materials, those using materials in high-temperature applications such as the power industry and in other areas such as microelectronics and lighting.
