The continuing rapid development of materials science and engineering is reflected in the 130 articles in this second update to the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Engineering. Of particular note are new articles in the expanding areas of composite materials, advanced and traditional ceramics, electronic and superconducting materials, elastomers and polymer applications, wood and paper, industrial minerals, materials characterization, surfaces and interfaces, fundamental physical metallurgy and metals processing, and production and fabrication. The articles are extensively cross-referenced and include subject indexes and selective bibliographies. Special features of this and subsequent supplementary volumes are a cumulative analytical table of contents and a subject index, which together will give the reader access to information in the current or previous supplementary volumes without reference to earlier tables or indexes. Complete alphabetical lists of titles and contributors are also provided.A convenient summary of the current scope of phase diagram calculations is given by the ten year index of the Calphad ... Such models have led to considerable advances, but are clearly based on semiempirical generalizations, and involveanbsp;...
