Advanced Materials and Technologies
The compilation, 'Advanced Materials and Technologies', explores current research efforts and progress in the design and improvement of the performance of structural and functional materials. In particular, the book deals with the relationship between a material’s production route, its chemical and phase compositions and microstructure on the one hand; and their influence upon every aspect of a wide range of its properties on the other hand: as well as the various factors which affect the efficiency of applied advanced technologies. Special attention is paid to nanostructures and to properties governed by phenomena at the nano- and/or micro-scale.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
With its selected papers which amplify the most interesting and up-to-date topics in this field, the work will be a veritable vade mecum for the modern technologist.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Papers from a June 2004 conference address current research and achievements in design and performance improvement of structural and functional materials. Particular attention is paid to the relationship between the material production route, its chemical and phase composition and microstructure, and various factors affecting the efficiency of applied advanced technologies. There is also special emphasis on nanostructures and on properties determined in nano- and/or micro-scale dimensions. Some specific topics covered include mechanical properties of ultra-fine grained Al-Li alloys, strain-induced up-hill diffusion of hydrogen in Al, and comparison of shot peening and nitriding surface treatments under complex fretting loadings.
