This course text provides a practical hands-on introduction to the essentials of kinetics, thermodynamics and microstructure modelling of materials. It provides concise practical descriptions of kinetics and microstructure modelling, condensing the essential information into an engaging and accessible text. Class tested by graduate students, the book includes worked examples throughout and is supplemented with phase diagram calculation software to aid learning. This book is ideal as a practical course for final year undergraduates and masters students in materials science and engineering, and is a core text for courses on thermodynamics, phase diagrams, kinetics and microstructure modelling.
