About this book

This is a comprehensive book applying especially to junior and senior engineering students pursuing Materials Science/ Engineering, Ceramic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering degrees. It is also a reference book for other disciplines such as Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Important properties of most engineering ceramics are given in detailed tables. Many current and possible applications of engineering ceramics are described, which can be used as a guide for materials selection and for potential future research. While covering all relevant information regarding raw materials, processing properties, characterization and applications of engineering ceramics, the book also summarizes most recent innovations and developments in this field as a result of extensive literature search.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Bengisu’s book … clearly fills a gap in the current textbook literature on ceramic science and technology … . Due to the well designed conception and the highly didactic style the present book may be expected to become a standard text in teaching ceramic science and engineering for the next decade. … the approx. 1000 references to original papers, including rather recent ones, make it an excellent reference manual for graduate students, technicians and researchers." (Eva Gregorová, Ceramics, Vol. 46 (3), 2002)

"There is a considerable need for a graduate level introductory text that updates earlier major volumes on advanced ceramics … . Engineering Ceramics, by Murat Bengisu, is aimed at fulfilling this requirement. … At 620 pages this is a ‘meaty’ volume, offering seven chapters and more than eighty pages of extremely useful appendices … . it can be recommended to anyone looking for a general overview of recent developments in advanced ceramics … . Particularly, it will be useful for scientists and engineers … ." (K Plucknett, Materials World, Vol. 10 (9), 2002)

"This book is a handy reference for technicians who want to understand the nature, properties and applications of Engineering Ceramics. It meets the needs of those working in the ceramics industry, as well as of technicians and engineers … . The book is also a comprehensive textbook for introductory ceramics courses since it incorporates all the subjects usually covered … . all of the topics covered are treated in sufficient detail and depth." (Interceram, Vol. 51 (1), 2002)
