Provides an unusually complete and readable compilation of the primary and secondary options for joining conventional materials in non-conventional ways. Provides unique coverage of adhesive bonding using both organic and inorganic adhesives, cements and mortars. Focuses on materials issues without ignoring issues related to joint design, production processing, quality assurance, process economics, and joining performance in service.Joining of advanced materials is a unique treatment of joining of both conventional and advanced metals andalloys, intermetallics, ceramics, glasses, polymers, and composites with polymeric, metallic, ceramic, intermetallic and carbon matrices in similar and dissimilar combinations. Suitable for undergraduate and graduate students in engineering in addition to practicing engineers, this book treats in detail mechanical joining with conventional and advanced fasteners or integral design features, adhesive bonding, fusion and non-fusion welding, brazing, soldering, thermal spraying, and synergistic combinations of weld-bonding, weld-brazing, rivet-bonding. In addition, the book addresses materials issues, joint design, production processing, quality assurance, process economics, and joint performance in service.


Undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, practicing mechanical, civil, and electrical designers, practicing manufacturing, industrial and process engineers, and technicians.
