Modern Materials, Volume 7: Advances in Development and Applications covers diverse subjects in the broad field of materials. The book discusses the manufacturing methods, physical properties, variation of properties through manufacturing controls, applications, and product standards and trade associations of the particleboard. The text also describes the basic principles, properties, applications of acoustical materials, materials produced by electrical charges, and pyrolytic graphite. The basic principles, properties, and applications of materials for temperature measurement and thermal insulation systems are also considered. Materials scientists and engineers will find the book useful.
