Since their inception Bioceramics meetings have provided a treasure house of information for both scientists and clinicians in the medical field. The clinical applications are numerous, in particular in the areas of orthopaedics, maxillofacial, plastic and ocular surgery, percutaneous devices, tissue engineering and sensors. This volume in addition to research papers contributed also presents selected overviews and discussions on recent bioceramics research and trends.

Description: The history of abrasive technology dates from the very dawn of mineral utilization and continues to this day with the development of precision-finishing technology.The current requirements of high precision and high quality surfaces for critical components and devices, such as silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry, lenses in the precision optics industry, and dies in the injection molding industry, make the technology of abrasives more important than ever, and essential, albeit indirectly, for the rapid development of information technology. This book therefore plays a valuable role in presenting recent advances in the field of abrasive technology.

Description: Electroceramics are among the most interesting and useful materials for electronic devices and many other high-technology applications. This series of books regularly presents the latest research results, on electroceramics, coming out of Asia and Japan. This current volume integrates two themes, "Asian Ceramic Science for Electronics II" and "Electroceramics in Japan V", and describes many new and important results in ceramic science as applied to electronics, including: conductive ceramics; dielectrics, piezoelectric and ferroelectric ceramics; semiconducting ceramics; insulators; thin-film electroceramics; batteries and cells; memory devices and optical devices. Emphasis is placed very much on the potential applications of these materials, without neglecting the necessary production and fabrication techniques.

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.

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.
