Structural Phase Transformation

  • F. E. Fujita
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 27)


Examples of phase transformations (transitions) in various materials are first introduced and the difference between the continuous and discontinuous transformation is outlined. The difference is theoretically analyzed by combining Ehrenfest’s criterion and Landau’s formulation and graphically shown by the G-T-η diagrams. Second, the precursor phenomena associated with the weak first-order transformation, which appear in the martensitic transformation of β-phase shape memory alloys, perovskite type ferroelectric materials and A-15 type superconductors, are explained by using a statistical thermodynamic theory. Transformations of other useful new materials such as ceramics and diamond are also described from the physical view point.
