Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, Third Edition


David Jiles
September 16, 2015

A long overdue update, this edition of Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials is a complete revision of its predecessor. While it provides relatively minor updates to the first two sections, the third section contains vast updates to reflect the enormous progress made in applications in th...

Structural Textile Design: Interlacing and Interlooping

Yasir Nawab, Syed Talha Ali Hamdani, Khubab Shaker
March 29, 2017

The properties of woven and knitted fabrics differ largely due to the path yarn follows in the fabric structure. This path determines the fabric’s physical properties, mechanical properties, and appearance. A slight variation to the design may result in entirely different properties for the fabric....

Broadband Metamaterials in Electromagnetics: Technology and Applications

Douglas H. Werner
March 29, 2017

The rapid development of technology based on metamaterials coupled with the recent introduction of the transformation optics technique provides an unprecedented ability for device designers to manipulate and control the behavior of electromagnetic wave phenomena. Many of the early metamaterial...

Fibre Structure

Siba Prasad Mishra
March 28, 2017

Fibre Structure states that each and every fibre from their manufacturing (man-made fibres) or during development (natural fibres) creates and develops its own and specialized structure. It might be the chemical structure, crystalline structure, amorphous structure and/or morphology. This structure...

Characterization of Nanocomposites: Technology and Industrial Applications

Frank Abdi, Mohit Garg
March 27, 2017

These days, advanced multiscale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by universities, and used in several applications. Unlike for macromaterials, it is difficult to obtain the physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nanomaterials because of the scale....
