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.

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.
