Bonding Theory for Metals and Alloys exhorts the potential existence of covalent bonding in metals and alloys. Through the recognition of the covalent bond in coexistence with the 'free' electron band, the book describes and demonstrates how the many experimental observations on metals and alloys can all be reconciled. Subsequently, it shows how the individual view of metals and alloys by physicists, chemists and metallurgists can be unified. The physical phenomena of metals and alloys covered in this book are: Miscibility Gap between two liquid metals; Phase Equilibrium Diagrams; Phenomenon of Melting. Superconductivity; Nitinol; A Metal-Alloy with Memory; Mechanical Properties; Liquid Metal Embrittlement; Superplasticity; Corrosion; The author introduces a new theory based on 'Covalon' conduction, which forms the basis for a new approach to the theory of superconductivity. This new approach not only explains the many observations made on the phenomenon of superconductivity but also makes predictions that have been confirmed. * Openly recognizes the electrons as the most important and the only factor in understanding metals and alloys * Proposes qCovalonq conduction theory, which carries current in covalent bonded pairs * Investigates phase diagrams both from theoretical and experimental point of viewAs is well known to all material scientists, the phase Diagram is the aroad mapa to the understanding and the ultimate usage of ... how a phase diagram can help us in utilizing an alloy is amply demonstrated in the formation of stainless steel.
