An Introduction to Ceramics and Refractories by A. O. Surendranathan

By A. O. Surendranathan

All Refractories Are Ceramics yet now not All Ceramics Are Refractories

Ceramics and refractories hide a variety of fields and functions, and their relevance might be traced way back to 24,000 BC to the 1st man-made piece of earthenware, and as lately because the overdue 1900s while ceramics and ceramic matrix composites have been constructed to resist ultra-high temperatures. starting with a close historical past of ceramics, An creation to Ceramics and Refractories examines each point of ceramics and refractories, and explores the relationship among them. The e-book establishes refractories as a category of ceramics with excessive fusion issues, introduces the basics of refractories and ceramics, and likewise addresses numerous purposes for each.

Understand Ceramic homes and Refractory Behavior

The e-book information functions for typical and artificial ceramics, in addition to conventional and engineering functions. It makes a speciality of many of the thermal and thermo-mechanical houses of ceramics, classifies refractories, describes the rules of thermodynamics as utilized to refractories, and highlights new advancements and functions within the ceramic and refractory fields. It additionally offers end-of-chapter difficulties and a suitable case study.

Divided into 3 sections, this article:

  • Introduces and info the purposes of ceramics and refractories
  • Discusses the choice of fabrics and the 2 phases in selection
  • Describes the section equilibriums in ceramic and refractory systems
  • Outlines the 3 very important platforms: unary, binary, and ternary
  • Considers corrosion of ceramics and refractories, disasters in ceramics and refractories, and the layout aspects
  • Addresses bonding, buildings of ceramics, defects in ceramics, and ceramics’ microstructures
  • Covers the creation of ceramic powders ranging from the uncooked materials
  • Explains 4 forming methods
  • Highlights 3 sorts of thermal treatments
  • Defines mechanical houses, and thermal and thermo-mechanical properties
  • Classifies fabrics and designates classes

Addressing issues that come with corrosion, purposes, thermal houses, and kinds of refractories, An advent to Ceramics and Refractories provide you with a simple wisdom of the basics of refractories and ceramics, and offers a transparent connection among refractory habit and ceramic houses to the training engineer.

Prehistoric Gold in Europe: Mines, Metallurgy and by R. Gebhard (auth.), Giulio Morteani, Jeremy P. Northover

By R. Gebhard (auth.), Giulio Morteani, Jeremy P. Northover (eds.)

Interest within the research of early eu cultures is transforming into. those cultures have left us gadgets made up of gold, different metals and ceramics. the appearance of steel detectors, coupled with more suitable analytical strategies, has elevated the variety of findings of such items significantly. Gold used to be used for financial and ceremonial reasons and therefore the gold items are a massive key to our figuring out of the social and political buildings, in addition to the technological achievements, of Bronze and Iron Age eu societies.
an accurate interpretation of the data supplied by means of gold and different steel gadgets calls for the cooperation of specialists within the fields of social, fabrics and average technological know-how. unique research of gold deposits in Europe have published the composition and genesis of the deposits as assets of the steel.
In Prehistoric Gold in Europe, a gaggle of major ecu geoscientists, metallurgists and archaeologists speak about the thoughts of gold mining and metallurgy, the socioeconomic significance of gold as coinage and an emblem of wealth and standing, and as a trademark of non secular conduct, in addition to a reflect of exchange and cultural kin reflected through the distribution and kinds of gold items in prehistoric occasions.

Superplasticity in Metals and Ceramics (Cambridge Solid by T. G. Nieh

By T. G. Nieh

This e-book describes advances within the box of superplasticity, the power of yes fabrics to endure very huge tensile lines. This phenomenon has expanding advertisement functions, but additionally offers a desirable medical problem in makes an attempt to appreciate the actual mechanisms that underpin it. The authors emphasize the fabrics facets of superplasticity. starting with a short heritage of the phenomenon, they describe the 2 significant sorts of superplasticity-- fine-structure and internal-stress superplasticity-- and talk about their operative mechanisms. in addition they current microstructural elements controlling the ductility and fracture in superplastic fabrics. Observations of superplasticity in metals (including aluminum, magnesium, iron, titanium and nickel), ceramics (including monoliths and composites), intermetallics (including iron, nickel, and titanium base), and laminates are completely defined. this can be a worthwhile textual content for graduate scholars and researchers in fabrics technological know-how and engineering.

Corrosion and Electrochemistry of Zinc by Xiaoge Gregory Zhang

By Xiaoge Gregory Zhang

Humankind's use of zinc stretches again to antiquity, and it was once an element in a few of the earliest recognized alloy platforms. even if steel zinc was once no longer "discovered" in Europe until eventually 1746 (by Marggral), zinc ores have been used for making brass in biblical occasions, and an 87% zinc alloy used to be present in prehistoric ruins in Transylvania. additionally, zinc (the steel) used to be produced in volume in India way back to the 13th century, good earlier than it used to be well-known as being a separate point. The makes use of of zinc are manifold, starting from galvanizing to die castings to electronics. it's a most well-liked anode fabric in high-energy-density batteries (e.g., Ni/Zn, Ag/Zn, ZnJair), in order that its electrochemistry, fairly in alkaline media, has been widely explored. within the passive country, zinc is photoelectrochemically energetic, with the passive movie showing n-type features. for a similar cause that zinc is taken into account to be a good battery anode, it has chanced on vast use as a sacrificial anode for the safety of ships and pipelines from corrosion. certainly, apart from zinc's famous attributes as an alloying point, its frequent use is especially because of its electrochemical homes, which come with a well-placed place within the galvanic sequence for safeguarding iron and metal in average aqueous environments and its reversible dissolution habit in alkaline solutions.
