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.

Description: Precision machining is an essential manufacturing process to achieve high dimensional accuracy and high surface integrity of functional components for various technological applications, such as those in aeronautical, biomedical, mechanical, metrological, mechatronic, nano-technological and microscopy industries. To achieve a satisfactory operation of precision machining, however, one must have a deep understanding of the setting and control of machining conditions, mechanisms of material removal and effectiveness of the cutting tools. As a result, a quality precision machining requires a comprehensive integration of the development of machine tools, the improvement of machining methods and the wise application of materials science and engineering and mechanics of solids.

The light metals (aluminum, magnesium and titanium) are important for many applications, but are most critical for transportation where weight savings results in a plethora of benefits including reduced fuel consumption, higher speed and longer range, improved performance/handleability, etc. This applies whether we are dealing with automobiles, airplanes, space vehicles, bicycles or even submarines – witness the titanium alpha class submarine in “Hunt for Red October”.
