Description: “Scientific technology” has progressively displaced “empirical technology” as the primary driver and basis for increasing economic development over the last four centuries. The integration of the power technologies developed during the 17th – 19th Centuries, with the mechanization of thought developed in the 20th Century, has increased the scale and efficiency of formal inventive and innovation processes as the key sources of wealth creation by innovation.

Description: This special-topic book consists of a collection of technical papers assembled under the rubric of “Advances in Understanding the Fatigue Behavior of Materials”. The focus of “Fatigue Behavior of Materials” centers on the changes in properties that occur upon applying cyclic loads. Following its recognition and increasing importance during the latter half of the nineteenth century, this branch of study has focused upon the study and rationalization of the engineering approaches that are commonly used to design against the initiation and/or propagation of the fatigue damage which would otherwise culminate in catastrophic failure.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters BCI (WoS).
The main purpose of this special-topic book, devoted to current trends in bioceramics, is to survey the present situation in this field, and to cover as fully as possible the various lines of research. The book includes many ceramic materials having clinical applications; some of them already entirely feasible, while others are expected to be available in the very near future.
