Alloys have superior properties, a wide range of applications, and meet the needs of high-tech development. Thus, they have become an attractive research topic. Phase transformation as a kinetic process taking place under certain thermodynamic conditions, such as the creation of liquid and solid alloys under varying conditions of high pressure, and low or high temperature, is a very active research field. Much important progress has been made in recent decades, thanks to the development of experimental techniques and computer simulations. These achievements have affected various fields, ranging from phase transformation theory, solid-state physics and chemistry to materials science. They have not only deepened our knowledge on liquid-solid, solid-solid and solid-liquid phase transitions, but have also provided a better understanding of the melting of alloys. Thermodynamics, phase transformation kinetics and structural evolution during phase transformation are crucial for understanding the structural properties of materials.
This Special Issue on thermodynamics and the phase transformation kinetics analysis of alloys aims to provide a forum for describing and discussing contemporary achievements. Our goal is to give special emphasis to phase transformation, focusing on thermodynamics and kinetics analysis, as well as their effects on physical properties. However, other topics (for example, structure evolution during the phase transformation of amorphous alloys and high-entropy alloys) are not excluded. Authors are invited to contribute to the Special Issue with articles presenting new experimental and theoretical advances. Contributions discussing the relationships between the phase transformation of alloys, the mechanism of these transformations, and their influence on physical and chemical properties are welcome.
Original articles and critical reviews from a wide range of disciplines are encouraged for submission to this Special Issue. The topics summarized under the keywords given below are only broad examples of the great number of topics this Special Issue has potential to encompass.
