Advanced ceramics and ceramic matrix composites continue to find increasing use in modern technological applications as ever more stringent demands are placed upon materials' properties. While advanced ceramics and ceramic composites have many potentially useful properties, they can be extremely difficult to fabricate. This book contains a series of independent chapters focusing on different aspects of ceramics processing. The views of leading experts on a number of ceramics processing options and the direction of which their field is taking. Aimed at the materials engineer, this book is a wonderful reference as well as a guide to expanding the knowledge of processing techniques and their underlying philosophies.
