Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Significant advances in materials technology have been made in recent years, by both university and industrial research laboratories. It is of great importance that there should be free transfer of information and technology between the research laboratory, industry, and marketplace. Such transfer and dissemination is promoted by Frontiers for Engineering Materials.

Description: There is extensive interest in the development of new and improved composite materials. This is particularly true of composite systems based upon metallic and ceramic constituents. As the characteristics of the interface are of central importance, there is a great incentive for an improved understanding of the nature of interfaces between constituents in such composite systems and of the factors that affect their mechanical characteristics.

Description: In the wake of the rapid progress made in ceramic science in recent years, advanced ceramic tools with superior mechanical properties have been developed, giving improved productivity, lower production costs and better workpiece quality. An introduction to the history, evolution, material properties, wear and fracture, processing technologies, and performance of various advanced ceramic tools has already been covered in Advanced Ceramic Tools for Machining Application - II.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The study of oxidation and corrosion resistance continues to play a vital role in the development of advanced ceramics. A knowledge of both the mechanisms governing the corrosion processes and the rate of degradation under conditions of use are required in order to permit judicious materials selection.

Description: Fundamental and applied research efforts to develop, characterize, and design structures with high temperature composite materials such as metal matrix composites (MMCs) are underway across the continents. New processing methods, evaluation of critical material properties, constitutive modeling, performance prediction are important needs which are essential for effective utilization and application of these materials.

Description: The relative importance of oxides in the field of materials is increasing every year, all over the world. The new or renewed basic and technological interest of ferroelectrics, ferroelastics, piezoelectrics, modulated structures and high-Tc superconductors provides excellent and well-know examples for the growing attention attracted by this class of materials. Most of the properties of these compounds are related to a phase transition phenomenon, so that phase transitions in oxides are today of the largest interest.
