About this book

This truly unique and practical book provides easy and rapid access to the accurate physical and chemical properties of all classes of materials. Particular emphasis is placed on the properties of common industrial materials in each class. Materials are classified in the following sections:

• metals and alloys

• semiconductors

• superconductors

• magnetic materials

• dielectrics and insulators

• miscellaneous electrical materials

• industrial ceramics, refractories and glasses

• polymers and elastomers

• minerals, ores, gemstones and rocks

• timbers and woods

• building materials

Detailed appendices provide additional information and an extensive bibliography completes this comprehensive guide. The index and format of the book enable the reader to locate and extract the relevant information quickly and easily.

François Cardarelli has spent many years compiling and editing this complete handbook of materials. His professional expertise and experience combine to make this an indispensable reference tool for scientists and engineers working in numerous fields ranging from nuclear to civil engineering.

About the authors

François Cardarelli has had wide-ranging commercial and industrial experience of materials, commodities and processes:

• at CNRS in Paris he designed and used electrochemical sensors for pollution control;

• as a research scientist at Électricité de France he helped to invent methods of preparation of industrial titanium and tantalum electrodes;

• as a registered professional consultant in Toulouse, he solved problems in electrochemical engineering, the selection of electrode materials, corrosion and high-temperature operation;

• at the Avestor Corporation, he worked as an industrial electrochemist and materials expert in charge of strategic raw materials, scientific and technical support for lithium processing and, as Battery Product Leader, in charge of lithium polymer batteries for electric vehicles, down-hole drilling anf telecommunications he defined battery requirements and specifications and invented pyrometallurgical and hydrometallurgical processing for spent lithium batteries;

• at Rio Tinto Iron and Titanium, he was principal chemist for Materials at Sorel-Tracy in Quebéc dealing with valorization processes for industrial residues and refactory benchmarking and electrowinning of metallic titanium.

• at the Material and Electrochemical Research (MER) Corp., Tucson (Arizona, USA) he was principal electrochemist working on the electrowinning of titanium metal powder from composite anodes and other materials-related projects.

• at present he is Manager of Recycling at 5NPlus Inc in Saint-Laurent Quebéc.

Doctor Cardarelli is also the author of Encyclopaedia of Scientific Units, Weights and Measures for Springer (ISBN: 1-85233-682-X).

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This handbook contains practical and concise information on key scientific and technical material properties for the most commonly used industrial materials … . Compared with many other handbooks on material properties, this handbook presents more background information on how to use the data presented. … Those looking for a materials reference handbook on commonly used industrial materials, especially those who need to have a better understanding of material property fundamentals, will find this an interesting and very useful handbook." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2009)
