The book treats materials processing from a theoretical and thus mathematical and quantitative point of view. The first portion draws from various fields to provide a theoretical basis upon which any materials synthesis and/or fabrication process may be completely described. In addition, the practical side of theoretical materials processing is directly addressed: the details of useful numerical simulation methods, numerous tables of material property values, details of useful mathematical manipulations that are frequently required, and helpful, detailed and easy-to-use tables of unit conversions are included. Furthermore, the book begins with a purely qualitative discussion of the key aspects of theory, to establish a sufficiently good understanding of the same aspects when they are re-introduced in their more customary mathematical, quantitative form. Taken together, the various elements of this book provide a sound foundation for both the understanding and the use of this theoretical approach to materials processing.
