Materials Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Advanced Materials

by James K. Wessel


A detailed guide to the latest advanced materials!

The Handbook of Advanced Materials brings together the latest information designers and product engineers need to know about these new materials and their properties. Taking a comparative approach geared towards problem solving and material selection, this comprehensive resource will serve as a bridge between the practitioner and the material supplier.

Detailed chapters describe the state of the art of each advanced material, including:

  • Plastic Composites
  • New Tougher Ceramics
  • Intermetallics
  • Metal Matrix Composites
  • New Alloys

In addition to chapters on specific materials, later chapters cover advances in manufacturing, nondestructive evaluation, and corrosion, among other topics. These chapters also contain information on in situ toughening, plasma spray, solid-state ion deposition, liquid veristors, smart materials, and remote microscopy.

The Handbook of Advanced Materials is both a useful guide to improvements in existing materials and an essential primer on the revolutionary materials that will figure in the breakthrough designs of tomorrow. Anyone engineering, designing, manufacturing, marketing, or studying products that use advanced materials, as well as professionals and students in the field of materials science, will benefit from this clearly organized and up-to-date reference.
