Description: The diverse mix of papers presented here, reflect the breadth of activities in the cost affordable use of titanium and emerging applications. The opening overview paper, by the editors, attempts to present a broad view of present and projected titanium cost reduction, both in titanium production and in subsequent processing. What is particularly clear is that the impetus for broadening markets for titanium is very much dependent on cost reduction methods, particularly cost sensitive industrial applications such as the auto industry.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The papers are grouped into four chapters and these are: Overview and Low Cost Processing, Powder Consolidation and Characterization, Creative Processing and Low Cost Materials and Properties.

As a relatively recent phenomenon, Electroceramics have had a profound impact on the so called "electronics revolution". Ceramic materials that have been specially formulated for specific electrical, electromagnetic and optical properties can be tailored for their use as insulators, ferroelectric materials, highly conductive ceramics, electrodes, MEMS, energy convertors, sensors and actuators, etc. The quest to push performance boundaries through further study into the fundamental aspects of electroceramics and their commercial applications is essential for the advancement of this science and technology. These works show the latest knowhow and new insights to the development of electroceramics
