In the pages of this present monograph readers will find virtually everything they need to know about the latest advanced materials. The authors have covered almost every angle, including composites, functionally graded materials, and materials for high temperature service. They also examine advanced approaches to local and non-local analysis of localized damage, and provide a new description of crack deactivation. This highly informative volume also tackles the material properties for high temperature applications.

Table of Contents

Material Properties for High Temperature Applications.- Thermodynamics of Constitutive Modelling of Damaged Materials.- Developing and Implementing Selected Constitutive Models for Elasto-Plastic-Damage Materials.- Developing and Implementing Constitutive Models for Specific FGM Applications.- Microstructural Analysis and Residual Stress Determination based on Scattering of Neutrons and X-ray Synchrotron Radiation.


From the reviews: "The book demonstrates that any advanced theory for the case of high temperature loading needs a deep understanding of thermodynamics and damage mechanics. ... is useful for students of advanced courses and PhD-students, who are interested in new developments in constitutive modelling. It can be recommended not only for scientists and researchers in mechanical engineering, but also in materials science and physics. It is helpful in the case if one needs materials data because a lot of data is ... presented in the book." (Technische Mechanik, Vol. 28 (1), 2008) "In this monograph, Skrzypek (Politechnika Krakowska, Poland) and colleagues develop constitutive laws for the analysis of metal- and ceramic-matrix composites. They discuss thermal and mechanical aspects and the modeling of damage via explicit inclusion in constitutive laws. In the same spirit, they also discuss functionally graded materials. ... The monograph is subdivided into two sections. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Researchers/faculty and professionals." (J. Lambropoulos, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)
