About the Book

"Engineering materials constitute the foundation of technology, whether the technology pertains to structural, electronic, thermal, electrochemical, environmental, biomedical, or other applications. Materials are so important in the development of civilization that we associate Ages with them. In the origin of human life on Earth, the Stone Age, people used only natural materials, like stone, clay, skins, and wood. When people found copper and how to make it harder by alloying, the Bronze Age started about 3000 BC. The use of iron and steel, a stronger material that gave advantage in wars started at about 1200 BC. The next big step was the discovery of a cheap process to make steel around 1850, which enabled the railroads and the building of the modern infrastructure of the industrial world. The fundamental concepts of materials science are crystal structures, imperfections, phase diagrams, materials processing, and materials properties. They are taught in most universities to materials, mechanical, aerospace, electrical, chemical, and civil engineering undergraduate students. However, students need to know not only the fundamental concepts, but also how materials are applied in the real world. Two-Volume ‘Brig’s Handbook of Methods & Research in Applied Materials Science’ covers structural, electronic, thermal, electrochemical, and other applications of materials in a cross-disciplinary fashion. The materials include metals, ceramics, polymers, cement, carbon, and composites. In-depth knowledge of the structure and behaviour of engineering materials is vital for anyone who is expected to select or specify them for applications within the engineering industry. This work will give learners an understanding of the structures, classifications and properties of materials used in engineering and will enable them to select materials for different applications. Two-Volume ‘Brig’s Handbook of Methods & Research in Applied Materials Science’ is dedicated to the latest advancements in materials. The goal of this handbook is to provide a platform for researchers and academicians all over the world to explain various new issues and developments in different areas of materials sciences and applications."
