  • High Temperature Strain of Metals and Alloysby Valim Levitin

    Wiley 2006; US$ 219.00 US$ 197.10

    Creep and fatigue are the most prevalent causes of rupture in superalloys, which are important materials for industrial usage, e.g. in engines and turbine blades in aerospace or in energy producing industries. As temperature increases, atom mobility becomes appreciable, affecting a number of metal and alloy properties. It is thus vital to find new... more...

  • Continuum Scale Simulation of Engineering Materialsby Dierk Raabe; Franz Roters; Fré Barlat; ; ric; Long-Qing Chen

    Wiley 2006; US$ 555.00 US$ 499.50

    This book fills a gap by presenting our current knowledge and understanding of continuum-based concepts behind computational methods used for microstructure and process simulation of engineering materials above the atomic scale. The volume provides an excellent overview on the different methods, comparing the different methods in terms of their respective... more...

  • Progress in Nanotechnologyby The) ACerS (American Ceramics Society

    Wiley 2010; US$ 191.00 US$ 171.90

    This edition of the Progress in Ceramic Technology series is a select compilation of articles on nanotechnology applications and markets previously published in ACerS publications, including The American Ceramic Society Bulletin , Journal of the American Ceramic Society , International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology , Ceramic Engineering... more...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 234.34

    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...

  • 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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 223.73

    This book offers an update of the knowledge needed to understand and use the most recent models of materials behavior and damage in structures. It is based on a course text used in France that was previously unavailable to the English-speaking world. 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$ 119.70

    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...

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

    Wiley 2010; US$ 165.00 US$ 148.50

    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$ 125.10

    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...
