New Book Analyzes Different Processing Techniques of Ceramics and Composites

Research and Markets has included a new book titled ‘Ceramics and Composites Processing Methods’ to its catalogue.

John Wiley and Sons’ new book analyzes the latest fabrication and processing techniques of ceramics and their composites. Advanced ceramic materials hold potential in a wide variety of fields, including aerospace, health, communications, environmental protection and remediation, energy and transportation.

By providing a detailed analysis of major processing methods for ceramics and composites, this book enables manufacturers to select the appropriate processing technique for producing their ceramic products and components with the required properties for different industrial applications.

With content provided by internationally renowned ceramics experts, the new book discusses both conventional fabrication methods and latest and emerging techniques to fulfill the growing demand for highly reliable ceramic materials. In this book, processing techniques for ceramics and composites are classified into sections, namely Densification, Chemical Methods and Physical Methods.

‘Densification’ section covers the basics and processes of sintering, viscous phase silicate processing and pulsed electric current sintering. ‘Chemical Methods’ section analyzes combustion synthesis, reactive melt infiltration, chemical vapor infiltration, chemical vapor deposition, polymer processing, gel casting, sol-gel and colloidal techniques. ‘Physical Methods’ section discusses techniques such as plasma spraying, electrophoretic deposition, microwave processing, solid free-form fabrication, and directional solidification.

Each chapter analyzes a specific processing method in detail. Together, these chapters provide readers extensive and advanced scientific data on different types of methods, techniques and approaches utilized for the fabrication and processing of cutting-edge ceramics and ceramic composites. The book is useful for students and scientists pursuing materials science, ceramics, nanotechnology, biomedical engineering and structural materials.
