Advances in Materials is a record of the proceedings of the symposium on Advances in Materials, held in Manchester College of Science and Technology, Manchester, England in April 1964.

The papers collected survey the developments in materials science and technology. The limitations imposed by materials on the progress of modern technology and developments to meet the increasingly exacting requirements of industry are examined. The topics discussed include the challenges to materials science in the chemical industry; progress in materials, designs, and fabrication techniques in the power generation industry; the nature of glass; and effects of temperature and environment on the mechanical behavior of metals.

Materials scientists and engineers will find the book a god source of information.
