    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 270.00

    The surface characterizations of engineering materials effects their scratch/abrasion/Mar resistance, coating adhesion/strength, and abrasive wear mechanism. Scratching of Materials and Applications has chapters devoted to direct industrial application and contains some of the important works that are being conducted. Scratch testing of materials... more...

  • Corrosion of Linings & Coatingsby Philip A. P.E. Schweitzer

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 121.95

    Instead of using expensive alloys to construct a tank or processing vessel, it is often more economical to use a less expensive metal, such as carbon steel, and install a lining to provide protection from corrosion. Corrosion of Linings and Coatings: Cathodic and Inhibitor Protection and Corrosion Monitoring offers focused coverage for professionals... more...

  • Nano and Microstructural Design of Advanced Materialsby M. A. Meyers; M Sarikaya; R. O. Ritchie

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 250.00

    The importance of the nanoscale effects has been recognized in materials research for over fifty years, but it is only recently that advanced characterization and fabrication methods are enabling scientists to build structures atom-by-atom or molecule-by molecule. The understanding and control of the nanostructure has been, to a large extent, made... more...

  • Creep Mechanicsby Josef Betten

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 99.00

    Provides a short survey of recent advances in the mathematical modelling of the mechanical behavior of anisotropic solids under creep conditions, including principles, methods, and applications of tensor functions. Some examples for practical use are discussed, as well as experiments by the author to test the validity of the modelling. The monograph... more...

  • Fundamental Issues and Applications of Shock-Wave and High-Strain-Rate Phenomenaby K.P. Staudhammer; L.E. Murr; M.A. Meyers
