About this Textbook

This textbook covers chemical thermodynamics in materials science from basic to advanced level, especially for iron and steel making processes.
To improve a process by applying knowledge of thermodynamics or to assess the calculation results of thermodynamic software, an accurate and systematic understanding of thermodynamics is required. For that purpose, books from which one can learn thermodynamics from the basic to the advanced level are needed, but such books are rarely published. This book bridges the gap between the basics, which are treated in general thermodynamic books, and their application, which are only partially dealt with in most specialized books on a specific field.
This textbook can be used to teach the basics of chemical thermodynamics and its applications to beginners. The basic part of the book is written to help learners acquire robust applied skills in an easy-to-understand manner, with in-depth explanations and schematic diagrams included. The same book can be used by advanced learners as well. Those higher-level readers such as post-graduate students and researchers may refer to the basic part of the book to get down to the basic concepts of chemical thermodynamics or to confirm the basic concepts. Abundant pages are also devoted to applications designed to present more advanced applied skills grounded in a deep understanding of the basics. The book contains some 50 examples and their solutions so that readers can learn through self-study. 

About the authors

Assoc. Prof. Taishi Matsushita is an associate professor at the Department of Materials and Manufacturing, School of Engineering, Jönköping University, Sweden since 2012.He received his Ph.D. from Kyushu Institute of Technology (2003) and became a senior researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in the same year. He was given the title Docent (corresponding to associate professor) from KTH in 2008. His research area is high-temperature physical chemistry.
Prof. Kusuhiro Mukai is a professor emeritus at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan and Northeastern University, China. He received his Ph.D. from Nagoya University (1968) and became an associate professor at the Kyushu Institute of Technology (1969).He was a guest professor at University of Toronto, Canada (1985) and Imperial College London, UK (2005). He was a professor at the Kyushu Institute of Technology from 1986 to 2004. His research area is high-temperature physical chemistry.
