Advanced Structural and Functional Materials Design
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The Industrial Revolution showed that the development and improvement of new materials and functions could bring about social change, and benefit human society. However, one can be forgiven for feeling that more recent materials research, particularly in the domain of metals, has focused only upon individual elemental characteristics and narrow specialty fields, and that the original vision of materials research has thus been lost.
However, the articles in this exciting collection showcase the development of amazing new advanced structural and functional materials and praise the stimulating achievements of breakthrough technologies in permitting their fabrication; starting from electronic, atomic, microstructural and morphological standpoints, before focusing in on their design and application. The contributions, arranged into the sections, I. Introduction, II. Advanced Structural Materials, III. Advanced Functional Materials, IV. Bio-Materials, V. Advanced Processing, cannot fail to stimulate any technologist to envisage whole new domains where these discoveries can be applied with great benefit.
