    Many of the properties that are of interest to engineers concerned with materials are controlled or influenced by the environment in which the material is to be used or to which it has been exposed during prior processing. These changes might be termed solid state phenomena since their effect is reflected in the properties of the solid, but they are basically of surface origin. This paper reviews the influences of surfaces, either internal or external, on some of the physical and chemical properties of materials.
