You should work through the resource online, answering the relevant examples paper questions when prompted.
This structured resource uses sections of illustrated text and animations (in PDF) to lead you through the core
concepts and applications of phase diagrams in Engineering. A complete PDF of the same content may be downloaded
from section 6 of the website - this may be preferred for working through the first time, or for later revision, but
make sure you follow the animated sections online. Each section builds on what has come before, so you must
complete each set of exercises to consolidate your understanding, before proceeding to the next topic.
This resource uses Scribd to display the PDF files and animations within the Webpages.
First make sure you view the Webpages in full screen. On some displays, you may need to scroll down
to see the full Scribd window. Note that this window can be controlled via various icons located at the
top and bottom of the window - e.g. to zoom in, or to display just the Scribd content in full screen mode.
