About this book

Thermophysical properties of high-temperature materials are important from both the scientific and engineering points of view. This book includes the latest developments in the measurements of atomic structure, density, surface tension, viscosity, heat capacity, thermal and mass diffusivity, thermal conductivity, emissivity, and electrical conductivity of mainly metallic melts. High-temperature measurements are difficult due to high chemical reactivity and fluidity. Some distinctive inventions on the experimental techniques such as levitation technique combined with microgravity, synchrotron radiation or magnetic field enable high-precision measurements. This book is the perfect choice for specialists and nonspecialists eager to know the cutting-edge details in this field.

About the authors

Hiroyuki Fukuyama is a professor in the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM), Tohoku University, Japan. He is conversant with the high-temperature metallurgical and inorganic materials processes, and has a well-founded reputation through measurement technique.

Yoshio Waseda is the former vice president of Tohoku University, Japan. Prof. Waseda is the author or coauthor of more than 500 scientific papers. He has received several awards for his outstanding contributions to the field of materials disordered systems including high temperature oxide and metallic melts.
