Phase Diagrams & Transformations Assist. Prof. Dr. ERSIN EMRE OREN

Phase Diagrams & Transformations

Course Description
    MBN 305 will provide the basic principles of phase equilibria and phase transformations in general and help students to adapt into this technologically important area. The course will focus mainly on the underlying thermodynamic principles of phase equilibrium, transformation and state. The binary and ternary phase diagrams, kinetics of phase diagrams, diffusion mechanism, and both the diffusional and diffusionless transformations in solids will be discussed.
