A Comprehensive Reference to Processing, Properties, and Applications of Materials and Technologies in Ceramic Sciences and Engineering

Reflecting important technological advances in the field, Engineered Ceramics: Current Status and Future Prospects presents a comprehensive reference to the full range of processing, properties, and applications of advanced structural and multifunctional ceramics, composites, and emerging ceramic materials and technologies that comprise the field of ceramic science and engineering. A wide array of ceramic–related topics are covered, including mechanical behavior and performance, non–destructive evaluation and mechanical testing, brittle and composite material design, modern fracture mechanics, thermal/environmental barrier coatings, advanced joining and integration technologies, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), next generation bio–ceramics, nanostructured materials, advanced processing and manufacturing technologies, thermal management materials, geo–polymers, aerospace, energy, nuclear and fusion applications, and many more.

With contributions from top researchers and scientists in various ceramic engineering specialties from around the world, this book:

  • Represents a one–stop compendium of emerging research and technologies on engineered ceramic materials
  • Feeatured in–depth cutting–edge treatment of a variety of topics of critical importance to ceramists
  • Focuses on the current status and future prospects of key technical topics related to engineering ceramics, multifunctional ceramics, and composite materials
  • Addresses innovative application areas such as infrastructure, electronics, energy, environment, transportation, space, nuclear energy, and biomedical along with applications of green technologies and processes for sustainable manufacturing

Timely and authoritative, Engineered Ceramics: Current Status and Future Prospects is an essential resource to all facets of technical topics related to a field of increasing importance in the 21st–century world.
