Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 14)


There have been many investigations about wettability of ceramics by various liquid metals, especially about the effects of chemical composition of metals on wettability, but there have been few investegations about the effect of chemical composition of ceramics on the wettability by liquid metals.
