Volume 2 considers the essential conditions for a model to be truly predictive. The authors use a statistical approach to rate the validity of the various predictive models that have been previously used for evaluating various thermophysical properties. On the basis of this assessment, the authors have predicted values for the thermophysical properties of elemental metallic liquids, which are lacking in experimental data. They believe their predicted values are at least as reliable, and sometimes more reliable than corresponding experimental values. According to the periodic law, the authors provide the periodic variations in values of some twelve physical quantities or thermophysical properties. This is based on the electron configuration in the outermost energy level of metallic elements. Finally, a large number of experimental data for the physical quantities and thermophysical properties of liquid metallic elements are compiled.

About Author

Takamichi Iida is the professor Emeritus of Materials Science and Processing at Osaka University. He obtained a Doctorate in Materials Science, studying the physical properties of metallic liquids. On the basis of the metrology of liquids, he also co-developed a viscometer for characterizing slag viscosities in continuous casting machines for the Japanese steel industry. He is the author, or co-author, of more than 200 research papers. He was awarded the Meritorious Honor Prize (in 1982), and the Okada Science and Technology Prize (in 2002). Roderick I.L.Guthrie is the Macdonald Professor of Metallurgy at McGill University, and is the Director and co-founder of the McGill Metals Processing Centre, established in 1990. He is the author, or co-author, of more than 450 publications, twenty four receiving best paper awards, and has about 240 patents from 12 inventions attributed to him. He is an Honorary member of the AIME and of the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan, a Distinguished Member of the AIST, is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, of the Canadian Academy of Engineers, and of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. He remains a very active member of the research community in North America, specialising in Fluid Dynamics and associated Heat and Mass Transfer in Liquid Metal Processing Operations.
