Materials of engineering and construction. Mechanics of materials

  • Mathematical and Computational Analyses of Cracking Formationby Yoichi Sumi

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book is about the pattern formation and the evolution of crack propagation in engineering materials and structures, bridging mathematical analyses of cracks based on singular integral equations, to computational simulation of engineering design. The first two parts of this book focus on elasticity and fracture and provide the basis for discussions... more...

  • Modeling of Magnetoelectric Effects in Compositesby Mirza Bichurin; Vladimir Petrov

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book brings together numerous contributions to the field of magnetoelectric (ME) composites that have been reported so far. Theoretical models of ME coupling in composites relate to the wide frequency range: from low-frequency to microwave ones and are based on simultaneous solving the elastostatic/elastodynamic and electrodynamics equations.... more...

  • Bio-Based Composites for High-Performance Materialsby Wirasak Smitthipong; Rungsima Chollakup; Michel Nardin

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Since synthetic plastics derived from fossil resources are mostly non-biodegradable, many academic and industrial researchers have shifted their attention toward bio-based materials, which are more eco-friendly. Bio-Based Composites for High-Performance Materials: From Strategy to Industrial Application provides an overview of the state-of-art... more...

  • Practical Materials Characterizationby Mauro Sardela

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Presents cross-comparison between materials characterization techniques Includes clear specifications of strengths and limitations of each technique for specific materials characterization problem Focuses on applications and clear data interpretation without extensive mathematics This unique book covers the most common materials... more...

  • Surface Microscopy with Low Energy Electronsby Ernst Bauer

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book, written by a pioneer in surface physics and thin film research and the inventor of Low Energy Electron Microscopy (LEEM), Spin-Polarized Low Energy Electron Microscopy (SPLEEM) and Spectroscopic Photo Emission and Low Energy Electron Microscopy (SPELEEM), covers these and other techniques for the imaging of surfaces with low energy (slow)... more...

  • Novel Optical Nanoprobes for Chemical and Biological Analysisby Lingxin Chen; Yunqing Wang; Xiuli Fu; Ling Chen

    Springer 2014; US$ 54.99

    Novel Optical Nanoprobes for Chemical and Biological Analysis starts with a brief introduction to several kinds of versatile nanomaterials with novel optical properties, such as gold/silver nanoparticles, quantum dots, upconversion nanoparticles and graphene. It mainly focuses on the latest sensor design strategies, which apply the optical properties... more...

  • Materials for Engineers and Techniciansby W. Bolton; R.A. Higgins

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    A comprehensive yet accessible introduction to materials engineering which provides a straightforward, readable approach to the subject. The sixth edition includes a new chapter on the selection of materials, an updated discussion of new materials, and a complete glossary of key terms used in materials engineering. This renowned text has provided... more...

  • Shape Memory Alloy Engineeringby Leonardo Lecce; Antonio Concilio

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 170.00

    Shape Memory Alloy Engineering introduces materials, mechanical, and aerospace engineers to shape memory alloys (SMAs), providing a unique perspective that combines fundamental theory with new approaches to design and modeling of actual SMAs as compact and inexpensive actuators for use in aerospace and other applications. With this book readers will... more...

  • Self-Healing Compositesby Guoqiang Li

    Wiley 2014; US$ 155.50

    In this book, the self-healing of composite structures with shape memory polymer as either matrix or embedded suture is systematically discussed. Self-healing has been well known in biological systems for many years: a typical example is the self-healing of human skin. Whilst a minor wound can be self-closed by blood clotting, a deep and wide... more...

  • Metal-Organic Framework Materialsby Leonard R. MacGillivray; Charles M. Lukehart

    Wiley 2014; US$ 231.50

    Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline compounds consisting of rigid organic molecules held together and organized by metal ions or clusters. Special interests in these materials arise from the fact that many are highly porous and can be used for storage of small molecules, for example H 2 or CO 2 . Consequently, the materials are ideal... more...
