Materials Processing

CRC Press has releasedMaterials Processing Handbook, edited by Joanna R. Groza, James F. Shackelford, Enrique J. Lavernia and Michael T. Powers. This 872-page handbook, organized into six sections, presents groundbreaking coverage of the processes applied to a myriad of solid materials, including ceramics, polymers, metals, composites and semiconductors. It also examines processes that convert one phase into another, processes that change only the microstructure within a solid phase, shape changes that modify the microstructure and properties of materials, joining processes, and the basics of processes integration.
