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.

Description: The rapid expansion of glasses as the materials of choice for optical, electronic, and other applications has led to a radical expansion in the use of the 75 or so elements not extensively employed in traditional glasses, i.e. the "rare elements in glasses" indicated by the title of this volume. Although some of these elements are not "rare" in the sense of availability, they are indeed rarely used historically in inorganic glasses.
