Modern Materials: Advances in Development and Applications, Volume 6 is a six-chapter text that provides comprehensive insight into the properties, applications, progress, and potentialities of various materials. The opening chapter deals with the characteristics, preparation, marketing, economics, and uses of radiation-processed wood-plastic materials. The succeeding chapters are devoted to the technological applications of materials, such as precious stones, solid propellants, and superconductors. A chapter surveys the engineering advances and technical used of glass materials. The concluding chapter discusses the occurrence, recovery, fabrication, unique properties, and applications of beryllium. Materials scientists, engineers, researchers, teachers, and students will find this book rewarding.
