  • Crystallization and Growth of Colloidal Nanocrystalsby Edson Roberto Leite; Caue Ribeiro

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Since the size, shape, and microstructure of nanocrystalline materials strongly impact physical and chemical properties, the development of new synthetic routes to nanocrystals with controlled composition and morphology is a key objective of the nanomaterials community. This objective is dependent on control of the nucleation and growth mechanisms... more...

  • Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Infrastructure Applicationsby Ravi Jain; Luke Lee

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    This book examines current issues of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in civil infrastructure. The contents of this book are divided into two parts. The first part engages topics related to durability and service life of FRP composites and how they contribute to sustainability. The second part highlights implementation and applications of... more...

  • Advances in FRP Composites in Civil Engineeringby Lieping Ye; Peng Feng; Qingrui Yue

    Springer 2012; US$ 409.00

    "Advances in FRP Composites in Civil Engineering" contains the papers presented at the 5th International Conference on Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Civil Engineering in 2010, which is an official conference of the International Institute for FRP in Construction (IIFC). The book includes 7 keynote papers which are presented... more...

  • High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites 6by Gustavo J. Parra-Montesinos; Hans W. Reinhardt; A. E. Naaman

    Springer 2012; US$ 229.00

    High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites (HPFRCC) represent a class of cement composites whose stress-strain response in tension undergoes strain hardening behaviour accompanied by multiple cracking, leading to a high strain prior to failure. The primary objective of this International Workshop was to provide a compendium of up-to-date information... more...

  • Advanced Functional Materialsby Hee-Gweon Woo; Hong Li

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    With recent developments in the polymer, ceramic, sensor, and fuel cell technology, a range of novel materials have been manufactured for advanced, compact, and electronic industry. Polymers, silicon, energy materials have received much attention in recent years. "Advanced Functional Materials" gives the most recent research results on polymer,... more...

  • Heat and Mass Transfer in Porous Mediaby J.M.P.Q. Delgado

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book, "Heat and Mass Transfer in Porous Media", presents a set of new developments in the field of basic and applied research work on the physical and chemical aspects of heat and mass transfer phenomena in a porous medium domain, as well as related material properties and their measurements. The book contents include both theoretical... more...

  • Fatigue of Beta Processed and Beta Heat-treated Titanium Alloysby Russell Wanhill; Simon Barter

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    This publication reviews most of the available literature on the fatigue properties of I annealed Ti-6Al-4V and titanium alloys with similar microstructures. The focus is on I processed and I heat-treated alloys because I annealed Ti-6Al-4V has been selected for highly loaded and fatigue-critical structures, including the main wing-carry-through bulkheads... more...

  • Nanostructured Materials and Their Applicationsby Stergios Logothetidis

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    This book gives an overview of nanostructures and nanomaterials applied in the fields of energy and organic electronics. It combines the knowledge from advanced deposition and processing methods of nanomaterials such as laser-based growth and nanopatterning and state-of-the-art characterization techniques with special emphasis on the optical, electrical,... more...

  • Fracture Mechanicsby Alan T. Zehnder

    Springer 2012; US$ 149.00

    Fracture mechanics is a vast and growing field. This book develops the basic elements needed for both fracture research and engineering practice. The emphasis is on continuum mechanics models for energy flows and crack-tip stress- and deformation fields in elastic and elastic-plastic materials. In addition to a brief discussion of computational fracture... more...

  • Semiconductor Nanostructures for Optoelectronic Devicesby Gyu-Chul Yi

    Springer 2012; US$ 149.00

    This book presents the fabrication of optoelectronic nanodevices. The structures considered are nanowires, nanorods, hybrid semiconductor nanostructures, wide bandgap nanostructures for visible light emitters and graphene. The device applications of these structures are broadly explained. The book deals also with the characterization of semiconductor... more...
