During the past two decades, China (whose very name of course has long been synonymous with 'ceramic' in the English language) has continued its ancient history of technological excellence in this field by also becoming one of the most active centres of scientific excellence in the field of high- performance ceramics. Building upon the success of the first conference in the series, the Second China International Conference on High-Performance Ceramics (CICC-2) offered an international forum for the presentation, discussion and review of the latest advances in the science and technology of high-performance ceramics.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The aim of this book is to contribute to the development of new functional and structural ceramic materials, exhibiting enhanced performances and having improved lifetimes and reliability, by fostering a better understanding of their deterioration and failure mechanisms under various stress conditions and at various operating temperatures. The publication covers the topics of basic failure phenomena; indentation fracture; fracture and fractography of structural, electro- and bio- ceramics; fracture of fiber-reinforced composites; fracture of porous and laminated ceramics; defect - strength and microstructure - fracture toughness relationships; and damage mechanisms in nanoceramics.

Description: Bioceramics has evolved into a major field of study having important implications for humankind’s future health and wellbeing.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The Bioceramics-14 monograph contains more than 160 papers with representations from over 20 countries. The topics range from totally inert, load-bearing materials, such as alumina, zirconia, silicon nitride and diamond to bioreactive materials such as calcium phosphates and bioglasses. The latter have great potential for aiding grafting, bone repair, drug-delivery, and implant-fixation to living tissues.

Description: Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis is an attractive advanced technology for the synthesis of a wide variety of advanced materials, including powders and near net-shape products formed from ceramics, intermetallics, composites and functionally graded materials, by exploiting the heat-energy released by the exothermic reaction of raw materials via a self-sustaining combustion wave which propagates from one end of the specimen to the other. When compared with traditional technologies, remarkable savings in energy, time and equipment, and novel forms of equilibrium and non-equilibrium phases and high-purity products can result from using SHS.

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.
