Materials science which focuses on clarifying a material’s properties at the micro- and nano-scale is rapidly accelerating the production of new advanced materials. The production of such materials, developed in this new century, will promote the growth of wholly new industries in a variety of engineering fields.

Description: The steel industry continues to remain a highly dynamic sector that must repeatedly face new challenges. During recent years, key factors have been the consolidation of new technologies, the marketing of new steel grades and the development of new products. Innovation, cost-reduction and environmental conservation are challenges that all of the players in the steel world - i.e. industry, research and academia - have to confront every day. Microalloying is one of the principal actors in this struggle.

This interesting volume focuses on the technology of metal and ceramic powders; particularly with regard to powder production, spray-forming, powder compaction and sintering, mechanical alloying, corrosion of PM parts and biomedical applications. Also treated are powder production, sintering mechanisms, sintering furnaces, injection moulding and ceramic processing, automotive applications and future perspectives.

Description: To the materials science community, Texture is an important property which describes the relative orientations of the various material elements which constitute the microstructure. These elements are usually the crystalline grains; each with a different orientation of its crystal lattice. However, morphological textures, such as the arrangement of fibers in a composite material, also have to be considered. In rare cases, the texture is random; with all possible orientations being equally represented in the material. But, usually, processing of the material has caused the texture to become non-random; with a consequent anisotropy of the material properties. Thus, not only metallurgists and materials scientists take an interest in textures, but also physicists, mathematicians, geologists, mechanical engineers and others.

Multifunctional materials are composite systems that exhibit useful responses to electrical, optical, magnetic and/or mechanical stimuli. They allow the compact and economic integration of two or more functions; which can be mechanical, biological, acoustic, thermal, electrical, magnetic, optical or sensory in nature. Functionally graded materials (FGM) are also multi-functional materials, which exhibit spatial variations in composition and/or microstructure; created with the specific purpose of controlling variations in thermal, structural or functional properties. In spite of large differences in the type and size scale of the materials considered, many common features exist, thus furnishing a rationale for grouping these materials together in one book.

Magnesium, with its very rich reserves within the Earth, is an important engineering material, but has not yet been fully developed and utilized. Given its low density, magnesium has a higher specific strength and stiffness than many other engineering materials: including aluminum, steel and polymer-based composites. Magnesium also offers other attractive properties: such as a high damping capacity, electromagnetic shielding, dimensional stability, and good machinability and recyclability. As a relatively new structural material, magnesium and its alloys have demonstrated a significant potential for applications in many industries: including automobile, 3C (computer, communication and consumer) products, transportation, power-tools/equipment and new energy sources.
