The Effect of Interfacial Phenomena on Materials Processing

  • K. C. Mills
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 428)


Interfacial phenomena play an important role in materials processing. However, until recently, their importance has not been widely recognised. To date few processes have been designed to use interfacial phenomena to improve process control or product quality and knowledge of interfacial phenomena has been largely limited to the explanation of occurrences, such as variable weld penetration in TIG/GTA welding. However, as this review shows, interfacial phenomena affect a wide spectrum of materials processes.
