  1. Silicon, Germanium, and Their Alloys

    Growth, Defects, Impurities, and Nanocrystals

    Edited by Gudrun Kissinger, Sergio Pizzini

    Despite the vast knowledge accumulated on silicon, germanium, and their alloys, these materials still demand research, eminently in view of the improvement of knowledge on silicon–germanium alloys and the potentialities of silicon as a substrate for high-efficiency solar cells and for compound...

  2. An Introduction to Ceramics and Refractories

    By A. O. Surendranathan

    All Refractories Are Ceramics but Not All Ceramics Are Refractories Ceramics and refractories cover a wide range of fields and applications, and their relevance can be traced as far back as 24,000 BC to the first man-made piece of earthenware, and as recently as the late 1900s when ceramics and...

  3. Plasticity

    Fundamentals and Applications

    By P.M. Dixit, U.S. Dixit

    Explores the Principles of Plasticity Most undergraduate programs lack an undergraduate plasticity theory course, and many graduate programs in design and manufacturing lack a course on plasticity—leaving a number of engineering students without adequate information on the subject. Emphasizing...

  6. Control for Aluminum Production and Other Processing Industries

    By Mark P. Taylor, John J. J. Chen, Brent Richmond Young

    An uncomfortable observation in the Shift Logs and Process Control records of most aluminum smelting plants is that process control failures, large and small, happen every day. Although only a small fraction of these failures give rise to catastrophic events, the difference between a disaster we...

  7. Industrial Brazing Practice, Second Edition

    By Philip Roberts

    In the past ten years, brazing technology has undergone sweeping changes. Yet because there are so few practitioners who understand the finer points of the technology, many of the companies that use brazing as their preferred metal-joining procedure are failing to use it to best effect. Fully...

  8. Superconductivity Revisited

    By Ralph Dougherty, J. Daniel Kimel

    While the macroscopic phenomenon of superconductivity is well known and in practical use worldwide, the current theoretical paradigm for superconductivity suffers from a number of limitations. For example, there is no currently accepted theoretical explanation for the pattern of superconductor...

  9. Aerospace Materials Handbook

    Edited by Sam Zhang, Dongliang Zhao

    Series: Advances in Materials Science and Engineering

    Whether an airplane or a space shuttle, a flying machine requires advanced materials to provide a strong, lightweight body and a powerful engine that functions at high temperature. The Aerospace Materials Handbook examines these materials, covering traditional superalloys as well as more recently...
