Publication Date: 19 Mar 2019

High-Entropy Alloys, Second Edition provides a complete review of the current state of the field of high entropy alloys (HEA). Building upon the first edition, this fully updated release includes new theoretical understandings of these materials, highlighting recent developments on modeling and new classes of HEAs, such as Eutectic HEAs and Dual phase HEAs. Due to their unique properties, high entropy alloys have attracted considerable attention from both academics and technologists. This book presents the fundamental knowledge, the spectrum of various alloy systems and their characteristics, key focus areas, and the future scope of the field in terms of research and technological applications.

Key Features

  • Provides an up-to-date, comprehensive understanding on the current status of HEAs in terms of theoretical understanding and modeling efforts
  • Gives a complete idea on alloy design criteria of various classes of HEAs developed so far
  • Discusses the microstructure property correlations in HEAs in terms of structural and functional properties
  • Presents a comparison of HEAs with other multicomponent systems, like intermetallics and bulk metallic glasses
