Grain Growth in Polycrystalline Materials II
Grain Growth is one of the most fundamental microstructural changes, and occurs in all types of polycrystalline material. It is of major scientific interest, and of great importance in a wide range of industrial applications.
This volume presents the most recent contributions to the research effort on the experimental study, theory and simulation of grain growth. Currently available experimental data are compared with recent theoretical results, and the most promising areas for future research are identified. Applications of the new findings to industrial experiences and problems are presented.
The principal topics covered are normal and abnormal grain growth, texture, drag effects, topological aspects, grain size-effects, and boundary structure, mobility and interaction with particles and impurity atoms.
