Book Title: Computer calculation of phase diagrams with special reference to refractory metals

Author: Kaufman, Larry

Book Description:

Dr. Larry Kaufman pioneered the CALPHAD methodology (CALculation of PHAse Diagram), which has become a critically important component in today’s computational thermodynamics. This book summarized Dr. Kaufman’s foundational contribution to thermodynamic modeling, i.e. the lattice stability that represents the energy difference of pure elements in different crystal structures. This concept made thermodynamic modeling of multi-component, technologically important materials possible and has lasting impact in both academia and industry.
