The classic book that presents a unified approach to crystallography and the defects found within crystals, revised and updated
This new edition of Crystallography and Crystal Defects explains the modern concepts of crystallography in a clear, succinct manner and shows how to apply these concepts in the analyses of point, line and planar defects in crystalline materials.
Fully revised and updated, this book now includes:
- Original source references to key crystallographic terms familiar to materials scientists
- Expanded discussion on the elasticity of cubic materials
- New content on texture that contains more detail on Euler angles, orientation distribution functions and an expanded discussion on examples of textures in engineering materials
- Additional content on dislocations in materials of symmetry lower than cubic
- An expanded discussion of twinning which includes the description and classification of growth twins
- The inclusion and explanation of results from atomistic modelling of twin boundaries
- Problem sets with new questions, detailed worked solutions, supplementary lecture material and online computer programs for crystallographic calculations.
Written by authors with extensive lecturing experience at undergraduate level, Crystallography and Crystal Defects, Third Edition continues to take its place as the core text on the topic and provides the essential resource for students and researchers in metallurgy, materials science, physics, chemistry, electrical, civil and mechanical engineering.
