Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
In recent years, significant progress has been made in developing high performance materials for technological needs. In the case of structural ceramics, silicon nitride-based materials are considered the most promising candidates.
The goal of this book is to evaluate the state of knowledge of silicon nitride-based materials with respect to basic science, powder technology and material properties as well as to discuss future work required in this areas.

Description: While iron and steel industries are the major users of refractory materials, applications in other areas such as power plants and waste incinerators are of growing importance. The appropriate use and maximum performance of the refractories cannot be achieved unless their interaction with the service environment is properly understood. The correlations between the microstructure of these materials and their thermochemical as well as thermomechanical properties greatly enhances this understanding.

Description: The volume presents the results of the 2nd ASM Paris conference on advanced materials. The theme of the meeting was selected to recognize that materials have matured to a stage where significant advances in the future require more than the traditional microstructure-mechanical property relationships approach. Greater emphasis must rahter be placed on synthesis/processing and modelling of advanced materials to achieve enhanced levels of physical and mechanical performance.

Description: Erosion of ceramic materials often limits their use in many structural applications such as turbine blades, turbocharger rotors, bearings, replacement hip joints, cutting tools, and windscreens and nose cones of supersonic aircraft. The degradation effects of erosion arise because of the extreme susceptibility of ceramics to localized surface cracking when impacted by a hard particle.
