  • Dislocation Theory for Engineersby Roy Faulkner; John Martin

    The Institute of Materials. Minerals and Mining 2000; US$ 50.00

    This book covers the application of elementary dislocation theory to the behaviour of crystalline materials. Separate chapters are devoted to pure materials, two-phase materials, elevated temperature effects and fracture processes. more...

  • Crystallography of the Polymethylene Chainby Douglas L. Dorset

    OUP Oxford 2004; US$ 249.99 US$ 214.99

    How do mixtures of differently sized and shaped molecules form the plastic solids known as waxes? Firstly, the book considers the characteristic crystalline assemblies of important wax ingredients; secondly, it looks at assemblies of two separate components and finally, based on the rules derived from the first two studies, it shows how plausible molecular... more...
