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.

Description: The relative importance of oxides in the field of materials science has been spectacularly increasing during the last twenty years. First the study of ferroelectrics kept the attention of scientists. Nevertheless this domain is far from being worked out and a lot of new results and of new fields of interest were recently discovered.
