The Fracture of Brittle Materials: Testing and Analysis

This book covers the relevant properties (toughness, strength, elastic modulus, microstructure, hardness), material types, fracture mechanics, measurement techniques, reliability and lifetime predictions, specifics of films/coatings, microstructural considerations, and material/test selection processes appropriate for practical analysis of brittle materials.

Materials - Engineering, Science, Processing and Design

The ultimate materials engineering text and resource: world class authors; design led-approach, broader scope than other texts; to a level of detail that is appropriate for undergraduate courses; innovative visually lead presentation without any loss of academic rigor or detail; fully linked with the leading materials software package, as used in over 500 engineering departments.

Ceramic Integration and Joining Technologies: From Macro to Nanoscale

This book joins and integrates ceramics and ceramic-based materials in various sectors of technology. A major imperative is to extract scientific information on joining and integration response of real, as well as model, material systems currently in a developmental stage.

Tribology of Ceramics and Composites: Materials Science Perspective

This book helps students and practicing scientists alike understand that a comprehensive knowledge about the friction and wear properties of advanced materials is essential to further design and development of new materials.

Advances in Materials Science for Environmental and Nuclear Technology II: Ceramic Transactions, Volume 227

This book contains 29 papers from the Clean Energy: Fuel Cells, Batteries, Renewables; Green Technologies for Materials Manufacturing and Processing II; and Materials Solutions for the Nuclear Renaissance symposia held during the 2010 Materials Science and Technology (MS&T'10) meeting, October 17-21, 2010, Houston, Texas.

Advanced Structural Ceramics

This book covers the area of advanced ceramic composites broadly, providing important introductory chapters to fundamentals, processing, and applications of advanced ceramic composites. Within each section, specific topics covered highlight the state of the art research within one of the above sections.

Structure, Deformation, and Integrity of Materials 2 Vol Set

This first integrated approach to thermomechanics deals equally with the atomic scale, the mesoscale of microstructures and morphology, as well as the macroscopic level of actual components and workpieces for applications.

Ceramics and Composites Processing Methods

There is increasing interest in the application of advanced ceramic materials in diverse areas such as transportation, energy, environmental protection and remediation, communications, health, and aerospace.

Silicon Carbide Biotechnology

Silicon Carbide Biotechnology provides not only the materials and biomedical engineering communities with a seminal reference book on SiC that they can use to further develop the technology, but to also provide a technology resource for medical doctors and practitioners who are hungry to identify and implement advanced engineering solutions to their everyday medical problems that currently lack long term, cost effective solutions.

Advances in Nanomaterials and Nanostructures: Ceramic Transactions, Volume 229

This book contains 17 papers from the Controlled Processing of Nanoparticle-based Materials and Nanostructured Films; Nanotechnology for Energy, Healthcare, and Industry; and Nanolaminated Ternary Carbides and Nitrides (MAX Phases) symposia held during the 2010 Materials Science and Technology (MS&T'10) meeting, October 17-21, 2010, Houston, Texas.

Ceramics Science and Technology, 4 Volume Set

Although ceramics have been known to mankind literally for millennia, research has never ceased. Apart from the classic uses as a bulk material in pottery, construction, and decoration, the latter half of the twentieth century saw an explosive growth of application fields, such as electrical and thermal insulators, wear-resistant bearings, surface coatings, lightweight armour, or aerospace materials.

Introduction To Materials Science

The approach of this concise but comprehensive introduction, covering all major classes of materials, is right for not just materials science students and professionals, but also for those in engineering, physics and chemistry, or other related disciplines. The characteristics of all main classes of materials, metals, polymers and ceramics, are explained with reference to real-world examples.

Processing and Properties of Advanced Ceramics and Composites IV, Volume 234, Ceramic Transactions

With contributed papers from the 2011 Materials Science and Technology symposia, this is a useful one-stop resource for understanding the most important issues in the processing and properties of advanced ceramics and composites.

The Magic of Ceramics, 2nd Edition

Most people would be surprised at how ceramics are used, from creating cellular phones, radio, television, and lasers to its role in medicine for cancer treatments and restoring hearing.

Ceramic Materials: Processes, Properties, and Applications

This book is primarily an introduction to the vast family of ceramic materials. It covers raw materials, powders synthesis, shaping, sintering, properties, applications, and discusses both structural and functional ceramics, including bioceramics.
