Key Engineering Materials
Electroceramics are among the most interesting and useful materials for electronic devices, and various other high-technology applications. This book series presents the latest research results for the electroceramics in Japan.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This book presents the latest research results on ceramic science for electronics as conductive ceramics; dielectrics, piezoelectric and ferroelectric ceramics; semiconducting ceramics; insulators; thin films of electroceramics; batteries and cells; memory devices; and optical devices in Asia. Emphasis is placed on the potential applications of these materials, as well as on production and fabrication techniques.
Comprising more than 600 papers, the aim of this 3-volume set is to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the relevant trends in the research and development of all aspects of ceramics. It will constitute an excellent reference source for every researcher working in the field.
Understanding the manner in which damage evolves in engineering materials, systems or structures is currently the focus of extensive research. The object of the present book is to report recent advances in the areas of damage detection, assessment and quantification.
Extensive research during the past 30 years has provided a relatively complete understanding of the many diverse aspects of abrasive processes which are suitable for the final machining of components that require smooth surfaces and precise tolerances. Although widely used in industry, abrasive treatments remain perhaps the least understood of all machining processes. Advances in the field of abrasive processes are therefore of great fundamental and practical interest.
The present book presents an in-depth report on probabilistic methods used to study fatigue and fracture of engineering materials. It is divided into three sections: fatigue; reliability modeling; and statistical methods. The book will serve as a useful new reference on probabilistic methods in fatigue and fracture. It should be of interest to researchers and engineers in industry and academia.
There is now a tremendous worldwide interest in functional biomaterials. The present book covers the major aspects of the field. It is divided into four parts. The first section (A) covers various aspects of joint replacement. Section B presents the topic of dental ceramics, while Section C describes the microstructural aspects of biomaterials. Finally, some of the recent innovations in biomechanics are discussed (Section D), together with some features of bioengineering.
