Fracture Mechanics of Ceramics by
Publication Date: 2005
The 8th International Symposium on fracture mechanics of ceramics was held in on the campus of the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA, on February 25-28, 2003. With the natural maturing of the fields of structural ceramics, this symposium focused on nano-scale materials, composites, thin films and coatings as well as glass. The symposium also addressed new issues on fundamentals of fracture mechanics and contact mechanics, and a session on reliability and standardization.

Publication Date: 2011
This reader-friendly book fosters a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through lucid physical descriptions, photographs, clear illustrations and fully worked example problems. More than 1,100 problems, including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems, provide an opportunity to apply fluid mechanics principles. Throughout, the authors have meticulously reviewed all problems, solutions, and text material to ensure accuracy. The Student Solutions Manual contains 100 example problems with solutions, designed by the authors to address the main concepts of each chapter of their text, Engineering Fluid Mechanics, 7E. These complete worked-out solutions help walk you through problem-solving processes that you can apply to the exercises in the main text.
Ceramics and Composites Processing Methods by

The proposed is an updated edition of a book that presents a classic approach to engineering elasticity. Lead author Art Boresi is considered one of the best authors in engineering mechanics alive today and has a number of well respected books to his credit. The classic approach taken will be enhanced in this revision based on both the authors plans and their acceptance of reviewer comments asking for more coverage of "modern" subjects and applications such as nano- and biomechanical elsaticity. Co-author Ken Chong at the NSF has proposed adding a third author, Wing K. Liu, from Northwestern University to help in this effort. They will also work to add more engineering applications and examples to supplement their more theoretical coverage. As with the second edition as solutions manual will be available on the instructorâ²s companion site.
