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: Nonequilibrium materials have always been of particular importance in materials science and application since most of the structural materials commonly used are not in the condition of stable equilibrium.

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.

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.
