Friction Stir Welding: Dissimilar Aluminium Alloys

1st Edition

Noor Zaman Khan, Arshad Noor Siddiquee, Zahid Akhtar Khan
August 01, 2017

The evolution of mechanical properties and its characterization is important to the weld quality whose further analysis requires  mechanical property and microstructure correlation. Present book addresses the basic understanding of the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) process that includes effect...

Applied Engineering Failure Analysis: Theory and Practice

1st Edition

Hock-Chye Qua, Ching-Seong Tan, Kok-Cheong Wong, Jee-Hou Ho, Xin Wang, Eng-Hwa Yap, Jong-Boon Ooi, Yee-Shiuan Wong
July 26, 2017

Applied Engineering Failure Analysis: Theory and Practice provides a point of reference for engineering failure analysis (EFA) cases, presenting a compilation of case studies covering a 35-year period, from the 1970s to 2012. This period spans the era from the time when slide rules were used...

Microplasma Sprayed Hydroxyapatite Coatings

1st Edition

Arjun Dey, Anoop Kumar Mukhopadhyay
July 26, 2017

There has been enormous growth in the use of medical implants. However, in the case of hip replacement, loosening of metallic prosthesis fixed with polymethylmethylacrylate bone cement has resulted in painstaking revision surgery, which is a major problem for the patient, surgeon, and biomedical...

Numerical Simulation of Heat Exchangers: Advances in Numerical Heat Transfer Volume V

1st Edition

W. J. Minkowycz, E. M. Sparrow, J.P Abraham, J. M. Gorman
April 17, 2017

This book deals with certain aspects of material science, particularly with the release of thermal energy associated with bond breaking. It clearly establishes the connection between heat transfer rates and product quality. The editors then sharply draw the thermal distinctions between the various...

FRP-Strengthened Metallic Structures

1st Edition

Xiao-Ling Zhao
April 16, 2017

Repairing or strengthening failing metallic structures traditionally involves using bulky and heavy external steel plates that often pose their own problems. The plates are generally prone to corrosion and overall fatigue. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), a composite material made of a polymer...

Kinetics in Materials Science and Engineering

1st Edition

Dennis W. Readey
March 29, 2017

"A pedagogical gem…. Professor Readey replaces ‘black-box’ explanations with detailed, insightful derivations. A wealth of practical application examples and exercise problems complement the exhaustive coverage of kinetics for all material classes." –Prof. Rainer Hebert, University of Connecticut...

Applications of EPR and NMR Spectroscopy in Homogeneous Catalysis

1st Edition

Evgenii Talsi, Konstantin Bryliakov
March 28, 2017

This book reviews advances in important and practically relevant homogeneous catalytic transformations, such as single-site olefin polymerizations and chemo- and stereo-selective oxidations. Close attention is paid to the experimental investigation of the active sites of catalytic oxidation systems...

Polymer Glasses

1st Edition

Connie B. Roth
December 21, 2016

"the present book will be of great value for both newcomers to the field and mature active researchers by serving as a coherent and timely introduction to some of the modern approaches, ideas, results, emerging understanding, and many open questions in this fascinating field of polymer glasses,...

Silicone Dispersions

1st Edition

Yihan Liu
December 16, 2016

Silicone is an important class of materials used in applications that range from industrial assembly to everyday consumer products. Silicones are often delivered and synthesized in dispersion forms, the most common being liquid-in-liquid (emulsion), solid-in-liquid (suspension), air-in-liquid (foam...

Materials Aspect of Thermoelectricity

1st Edition

Ctirad Uher
November 21, 2016

In recent years, novel families of materials have been discovered and significant improvements in classical thermoelectric materials have been made. Thermoelectric generators are now being used to harvest industrial heat waste and convert it into electricity. This is being utilized in communal...

Refractory Technology: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition

Ritwik Sarkar
November 10, 2016

This book provides a basic understanding of refractories. This includes the fundamentals of refractory technology supported by phase diagrams as well as detailing the prominent applications of these essential industrial materials. This book covers all the facets of refractory technology,...

Transformation Wave Physics: Electromagnetics, Elastodynamics, and Thermodynamics

1st Edition

Mohamed Farhat, Pai-Yen Chen, Sebastien Guenneau, Stefan Enoch
September 09, 2016

Space–time transformations as a design tool for a new class of composite materials (metamaterials) have proved successful recently. The concept is based on the fact that metamaterials can mimic a transformed but empty space. Light rays follow trajectories according to Fermat’s principle in this...
