By James F. Shackelford, Robert H. Doremus

"Ceramic and Glass fabrics: constitution, houses and Processing" is a concise and complete consultant to the main ceramic and glass fabrics utilized in sleek expertise. each one bankruptcy specializes in the structure-property relationships for those vital fabrics and expands the reader's knowing in their nature via at the same time discussing the know-how in their processing tools. In every one case, the ensuing realizing of the modern functions of the fabrics offers insights as to their destiny roles in 21st century engineering and know-how. geared up to be a realistic and complete source, every one bankruptcy is devoted to a selected fabric equivalent to: alumina, mullite, sillimanite minerals, aluminates, quartz and silicas, refractory oxides, clays, concrete and cement, lead compounds, and zirconia. Written by means of foreign authors in fabrics technology and engineering, "Ceramic and Glass fabrics: constitution, houses and Processing" is a useful reference for complicated undergraduates, graduate scholars, and dealing execs in a variety of clinical fields.
