This book covers a broad range of key engineering materials and provide industry professionals and researchers in polymer science and technology with a single, comprehensive book summarizing all aspects involved in the functional materials production chain. This book introduces the current state-of-the-art technology in key engineering materials with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies. It takes a unique approach by presenting specific materials, then progresses into a discussion of the ways in which these novel materials and processes are integrated into today's functioning manufacturing industry .

It follows a more quantitative and design-oriented approach than other texts in the market, helping readers gain a better understanding of important concepts. They'll also discover how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process as well as how to perform quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes.

This new book:

  • is a collection of articles that highlight some important areas of current interest in key engineering materials.
  • gives an up-to-date and thorough exposition of the present state of the art of key engineering materials.
  • describes the types of techniques now available to engineers and technicians, and discusses their capabilities, limitations and applications
  • provides a balance between materials science and chemical aspects, basic and applied research, and high technology and high volume (low cost) composite development.
  • explains modification methods for changing of different materials properties
