Advanced Powder Technology VIII
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special collection of peer-reviewed papers focuses on the powder technology of metals, ceramics and composites. The 343 papers are grouped into 3 chapters: 1 - Powder Metallurgy; 2 - Ceramics I; 3 - Ceramics II. The topics covered range over powder production, ceramics processing, properties, powder compaction and sintering, injection moulding and mechanical alloying. A special session dealt with nanomaterials, fuel cells, storage energy materials, biomaterials, sintering atmospheres, PM markets, characterization and applications.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Over 350 peer-reviewed and selected papers look in turn at powder metallurgy and ceramics. Among the topics are producing aerospace tial intermetallics for high temperature applications by powder metallurgy, diffusion coefficients of interest for simulating heat treatment in rare-earth transition metal magnets, improving tribological properties by titanium nitride deposition in titanium alloys produced by powder metallurgy, developing ultrafiltration tubular ceramic membranes that use granite residue in their composition, reformulating a kaolinitic clay ceramic body with sand and flux clay for producing roofing tiles, evaluating the mechanical properties of dental feldphatic porcelains for metal and zirconia cores, carbon nanostructures synthesized from coconut coir dust mediated by layered clay through a hydrothermal process, the influence of exchanged surfactant on the structure and adsorption properties of Brazilian green mud clay, rheological behavior of xanthan gum solutions to estimate the settling velocity of particles during stops in a drilling operation, and laser modified thin layers in piston rings. The two volumes are pages consecutively and indexed together in the second.
