  • Burrs - Analysis, Control and Removalby Jan C. Aurich; David Dornfeld

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 216.14

    In many machining operations burrs cannot be avoided. They can affect the functionality and the safe handling of the workpiece in the subsequent processing, and have to be removed by a special deburring process. Toleration of burrs, which are not part of functional edges, depends on their respective shape and size. High inspection effort is necessary... more...

  • Non-Linear Mechanics of Materialsby Jacques Besson; Marc Blétry; Georges Cailletaud; Jean-Louis Chaboche; Samuel Forest

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 206.35

    In mechanical engineering and structural analysis there is a significant gap between the material models currently used by engineers for industry applications and those already available in research laboratories. This is especially apparent with the huge progress of computational possibilities and the corresponding dissemination of numerical tools... more...

  • Fracture Mechanicsby Robert P. Wei

    Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 60.00

    This text integrates fracture mechanics, surface and electrochemistry, materials science, probability and statistics to address fracture safety and durability issues. more...

  • Update on Syntactic Foamsby Bibin John; C.P. Reghunadhan Nair

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2010; US$ 125.00

    Syntactic foams are polymer composites obtained by dispersing hollow spheres in a matrix. They have excellent properties such as low density, high specific strength, low moisture absorption, lower thermal coefficient of expansion, and in some case radar or sonar transparency for use in Stealth technology. One of their biggest advantages is the fact... more...

  • Microwave Imagingby Matteo Pastorino

    Wiley 2010; US$ 133.00 US$ 115.27

    An introduction to the most relevant theoretical and algorithmic aspects of modern microwave imaging approaches Microwave imaging—a technique used in sensing a given scene by means of interrogating microwaves—has recently proven its usefulness in providing excellent diagnostic capabilities in several areas, including civil and industrial... more...

  • Wörterbuch deutscher Partikelnby René Métrich; Eugčne Faucher; Jörn Albrecht

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 346.48

    Trotz jahrzehntelanger Partikelforschung seit den bahnbrechenden Arbeiten von Krivonosov und Weydt gibt es bis heute kein größeres Wörterbuch, ob ein- oder zweisprachig, in dem die Partikeln und partikelähnlichen Wörter der deutschen Sprache eingehend, umfassend und korpusbasiert beschrieben würden. Diese Lücke zu schließen ist Aufgabe... more...

  • Chemistry of Nanocarbonsby Takeshi Akasaka; Fred Wudl; Shigeru Nagase

    Wiley 2010; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00

    During the last decade, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes have attracted special interest as new nanocarbons with novel properties. Because of their hollow caged structure, they can be used as containers for atoms and molecules, and nanotubes can be used as miniature test-tubes. Chemistry of Nanocarbons presents the most up-to-date research on chemical... more...

  • Low-Dimensional Solidsby Duncan W. Bruce; Dermot O'Hare; Richard I. Walton

    Wiley 2011; US$ 139.00 US$ 120.47

    With physical properties that often may not be described by the transposition of physical laws from 3D space across to 2D or even 1D space, low-dimensional solids exhibit a high degree of anisotropy in the spatial distribution of their chemical bonds. This means that they can demonstrate new phenomena such as charge-density waves and can display nanoparticulate... more...

  • International Handbook on Regulating Nanotechnologiesby Graeme A. Hodge; Diana M. Bowman; Andrew D. Maynard

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2010; US$ 60.00

    As scientists and technologists discover how to engineer matter at the nanoscale in increasingly sophisticated ways, conventional approaches to ensuring safe use are being brought into question. Nanotechnologies are challenging traditional regulatory regimes; but they are also prompting new thinking on developing and using emerging technologies safely.... more...

  • Porous Materialsby Duncan W. Bruce; Dermot O'Hare; Richard I. Walton

    Wiley 2011; US$ 139.00 US$ 120.47

    In the past few decades, the increasingly routine use of advanced structural probes for studying the structure and dynamics of the solid state has led to some dramatic developments in the field of porous solids. These materials are fundamental in a diverse range of applications, such as shape-selective catalysts for energy-efficient organic transformations,... more...
