German and Park (both mechanical engineering and advanced vehicular systems, Mississippi State U.) cover ceramics, cemented carbides, powder metallurgy, and other particulate materials in this unique approach to mathematical relations and modeling. Designed as a quick reference for professionals, this includes the basic mathematics of powder technology relations (such as atomization, milling, powder production, powder characterization, mixing, particle packing and powder testing), powder processing (such as injection molding, slurry and paste-shaping techniques, polymer pyrolysis, sintering, hot isostatic pressing, and forging, including microstructure development and coarsening), and finishing operations (such as surface treatments, heat treatments, microstructure analysis, material testing, data analysis and structure-property relations). Topics are in alphabetical order and the authors include an appendix covering constants and conversion factors with international units and a comprehensive list of references. The result is extremely practical for scientists, engineers, and technicians working in materials processing as well as for students.
