The book series authored by MSIT provide reliable and comprehensive descriptions of materials constitution. They are based on critical intellectual evaluations of all data available at the time and it critically weights the different findings.


Selected Systems for Nuclear Applications - release planned October 2019
Volume 19 of the handbook series Ternary Alloys. A Comprehensive Compendium of Evaluated Constitutional Data and Phase Diagrams

Coming soon

After a long time-out, the next volume of Ternary Alloys is on the way!

The Volume 19 “Selected Systems for Nuclear Applications” is planned to be issued in October 2019 as a printed edition and as an e-book.

Starting with the Volume 19, MSI is changing slightly the concept of the handbook series “Ternary Alloys. A Comprehensive Compendium of Evaluated Constitutional Data and Phase Diagrams”. Instead of exploring alphabetically all ternary systems based on one chemical element, like Al-X-Y or Mg-X-Y, the future volumes will be dedicated to particular classes of materials or particular application areas, like volume 19 – “Selected Systems for Nuclear Applications”. Selected are ternary systems of importance to industrial alloy development and systems which gained scientific interest in the recent years.

The book series Ternary Alloys provides reliable and comprehensive descriptions of the materials constitution, based on critical intellectual evaluations of all data available at the time and it critically weights the different findings, also with respect to their compatibility with today’s edge binary phase diagrams.

Reliable phase diagrams provide scientists and engineers with basic information of eminent importance for fundamental research and for the development and optimization of materials. So collections of such diagrams are extremely useful, if the data on which they are based have been subjected to critical evaluation, like in these volumes. Critical evaluation means: there where contradictory information is published data and conclusions are being analyzed, broken down to the firm facts and re-interpreted in the light of all present knowledge.

The evaluations are performed by MSIT®, Materials Science International Team, a group of scientists working together since 1984, being responsible for the publication of more than 60 books on phase diagrams and work related to the study of phase equilibria. Within this team skilled expertise is available for a broad range of methods, materials and applications. This joint competence is employed in the critical evaluation of the often conflicting literature data.
