Description & Coverage
Description:

Ceramics are a versatile material, more so than is widely known. They are thermal resistant, poor electrical conductors, insulators against nuclear radiation, and not easily damaged, making ceramics a key component in many industrial processes.

MAX Phases and Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics for Extreme Environments investigates a new class of ultra-durable ceramic materials, which exhibit characteristics of both ceramics and metals. Readers will explore recent advances in the manufacturing of ceramic materials that improve their durability and other physical properties, enhancing their overall usability and cost-effectiveness. This book will be of primary use to researchers, academics, and practitioners in chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering. This book is part of the Research Essentials collection.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Damage Tolerance
  • Hot Engine Turbines
  • Irradiation Resistance
  • Manufacturing Methods
  • MAX Phase Ceramics
  • Microstructure Properties
  • Oxidation Resistance
  • Structural Stability
  • Thermal Shock Resistance
  • Thermochemical Stability

Editor/Author Biographies
Prof. Low gained his B. Eng (Hons) and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Engineering from Monash University prior to taking up research or academic positions at University of Sydney, University of Auckland and then Curtin University. He was awarded a Visiting Professorship by the Japanese Ministry of Education to work with Prof. Niihara at Osaka University in 1995/1996. He is a Fellow of the Australian Ceramic Society and has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Australian Ceramic Society and Journal of Ceramics. He is also the recipient of the prestigious 1996 Joint Australian Ceramic Society/Ceramic Society of Japan Ceramic Award for excellence in ceramics research. Prof. Low has edited 8 books and is author of over 250 archival research papers. He has an h-index of 18 and 1280 citations.
Yoshio Sakka is a Managing Director of Materials Processing Unit at National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), and Professor of the University of Tsukuba. He received his B.E. in 1978, M.E in 1980, and Ph. D. in 1983 from Kyushu University. After receiving his Ph.D, he joined the National Research Institute for Metals (present NIMS). During 1991-92, he stayed a year in University of Washington. He is the author or coauthor of 14 books, above 450 original referee’s papers, above 60 review papers, and above 50 patents (including application). By the above establishment, he received many awards, such as Fulrath award from American Ceramic Society (May, 2000), Academic achievement from Japanese Ceramic Society (May, 2005), Chinese Ceramic Society Award (Oct., 2005), Academy member of World Academy of Ceramics (July, 2009), Richard Brook Award from European Ceramic Society (June, 2011), etc. He has an h-index of 32 and 4600 citations.
Chunfeng Hu gained his Ph.D degree in Institute of Metal Research of Chinese Academy of Sciences in China. He has worked in National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) as a research fellow in Japan. He has published more than 50 scientific papers, applied 30 patents of advanced materials. He has an h-index of 11 and 400 citations.
