Superplastic forming of advanced metallic materials: Methods and Applications (Woodhead Publishing in Materials)

Extremely fine-grained metals can exhibit unheard of ductility, referred to as superplasticity, in the course of sheet forming. the better ductility of superplastic metals makes it attainable to shape huge and intricate parts in one operation with no joints or rivets. the result's much less waste, reduce weight and production expenditures, excessive precision and absence of residual rigidity linked to welding.

Fatigue of Materials and Structures: Application to Damage and Design

The layout of mechanical constructions with better and predictable toughness can't be completed with no thorough knowing of the mechanisms of fatigue harm and extra in particular the relationships among the microstructure of fabrics and their fatigue houses. Written by way of major specialists within the box, this publication (which is complementary to Fatigue of fabrics and constructions: program to break and layout, additionally edited through Claude Bathias and Andre Pineau), presents an authoritative, finished and unified remedy of the mechanics and micromechanisms of fatigue in metals, polymers and composites.

Single-Molecule Electronics: An Introduction to Synthesis, Measurement and Theory

This publication provides a multidisciplinary method of single-molecule electronics. It incorporates a whole evaluate of the sector, from the synthesis and layout of molecular applicants to the frequent experimental innovations, complemented via a close theoretical description. This all-inclusive procedure presents the reader with the much-needed point of view to completely comprehend the far-reaching ramifications of single-molecule electronics.

Bioactive Glasses - Fundamentals, Technology and Applications

The worldwide getting older society has considerably elevated the necessity for implant fabrics, which not just substitute broken or misplaced tissue yet also are in a position to regenerate it. the sphere of bioactive glasses has been increasing constantly over fresh years as they've been proven to bond with tough and tender tissue, liberate therapeutically energetic ions, and be capable to improving bone formation and regeneration.

Can be imparted in ceiling, walls and bottom of the floor. The efficacy of the different sound absorbing materials can be evaluated using a grade scale. This is referred as sound classification system. 9 Sound Classification In sound classification, as mentioned earlier, sound absorption by different sound insulation materials are represented by a common value, say, sound absorption coefficient. Based on the coefficient value, various sound absorption classes are developed. ISO 11654:1997 have standardized those classes as A–F where A is the best sound class with the highest sound absorption coefficient and F is the lowest sound absorption coefficient (Table 4).

2 Absorption There is usually an energy loss when sound propagates in a medium. Although the energy loss can be caused by some kinds of energy dissipation such as absorption, the term “attenuation coefficient” is used in Sect. 1 to describe the reduction in amplitude of a progressive wave with the distance in the propagation direction in the medium. When the sound wave encounters different medium or space Principles of Sound Absorbers 47 discontinuity in the propagation, reflection happens. The energy loss associated with the reflection from a boundary is described by the sound pressure reflection coefficient, which is the change in amplitude and phase of the propagating wave taken place during the reflection.
