Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 29: Structural Ceramics presents an overview of structural ceramics.
This book begins with a survey of potential uses, designs, and barriers of particular types of structural ceramics. The silicon carbide family, silicon nitride and sialon family, and transformation toughened ceramics are discussed in detail, followed by an analysis of the various processing routes of each family of structural ceramics. This publication concludes with a review of the tribology of structural ceramics, considering many applications for structural ceramics in heat engines and other machinery that involve moving parts which must often resist wear or erosion.
This volume is recommended for engineers, scientists, and researchers concerned with structural ceramics.
