"New and improved product designs demand knowledge of the latest advanced materials. Having this knowledge and putting it into practice will frequently result in higher product performance, increased sales, and a more efficient manufacturing process. . . .Choosing the right materials for a design can be a major factor in a product's success or failure. . . . Detailed chapters describe the state of the art of each advanced material, including: Plastic Composites; New Tougher Ceramics; Intermetallics; Metal Matrix Composites; New Alloys. Later chapters cover advances in manufacturing, nondestructive evaluation, and corrosion, among other topics. These chapters also contain information on in situ toughening, plasma spray, solid-state ion deposition, liquid veristors, smart materials, and remote microscopy."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
