Description: This book presents ten chapters on the science and engineering of durable surfaces. The first section focusses on various types of surfaces and advanced coating processes, while the second part concentrates particularly on thermal barrier coatings. The book covers both, in-depth state-of-the-art reviews as well as cutting-edge new information emerging from ongoing research:

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.

Electroceramics are among the most interesting and useful materials for electronic devices, and various other high-technology applications. The present volume discusses dielectric, piezoelectric, semiconductive, ionically conducting and superconductive materials. Special emphasis is placed on the characterization of these materials, including computer simulations, and on the fabrication procedures for bulk and thin film ceramics on the submicronmeter scale. Important results are reported on grain boundary phenomena and the effects of various crystal and surface structures on the technologically important properties of electroceramics.

This work represents a new approach to ceramics research. The mechanical properties of ceramics and ceramic-based composites are well understood and have been studied extensively in the past. This more profound understanding of physical properties, such as particularly low or high thermal conductivities, radiation penetration depth, electrical and magnetic responses etc., can now lead to the development of new materials having improved properties.
