Ceramics and composites processing methods.

Ed. by Narottam P. Bansal and Aldo R. Boccaccini.

John Wiley & Sons

585 pages




Materials scientists and engineers, and related researchers survey a range of processing techniques for ceramics and their composites, considering both traditional fabrication routes and advanced approaches being developed in response to new applications in transport, energy, communications, health, and other areas. Within sections on densification, chemical methods, and physical methods, they discuss such topics as fundamentals and practice of sintering, processing and applications of sol-gel glass, the chemical vapor deposition of structural ceramics and composites, directional solidification, and processing ceramics by plasma spraying.
