V.L. Mazur, O. V. Nogovitsyn
November 07, 2018

Despite significant advances in technology and equipment for rolled steel, the computerization of production processes and the steady increase in production of sheet steel, recent scientific and technological achievements have not been compiled in the special literature and revealed to a wide range...

Regenerative Engineering

1st Edition

Cato T. Laurencin, Yusuf Khan
November 06, 2018

Distinct from tissue engineering, which focuses primarily on the repair of tissues, regenerative engineering focuses on the regeneration of tissues: creating living, functional tissue that has the ability to replace organs that are dysfunctional. The challenge of working in an area like...

Composite Media with Weak Spatial Dispersion

1st Edition

Constantin Simovski
November 06, 2018

This book presents a modern theory of so-called weak spatial dispersion (WSD) in composite media of optically small inclusions without natural magnetism and optical nonlinearity. WSD manifests in two important phenomena called bianisotropy and artificial magnetism, whose microscopic origin is...

Liquid Marbles: Formation, Characterization, and Applications

1st Edition

Andrew T. Tyowua
October 24, 2018

Certain small solid particles are surface-active at fluid interfaces and thus are able to stabilize materials previously considered impossible to stabilize in their absence. Liquid marbles, particle-coated non-sticking liquid droplets, represent one of these materials. Preparation of liquid marbles...
