Nano Materials By A. K. Bandyopadhyay
Publisher: NewAge International 2008 | 321 Pages | ISBN: 8122423213 | PDF | 12 MB
This book is concerned with the technique of attrition milling for the preparation of nano particles like two important ceramic materials for hi-tech applications, e.g. silicon carbide and alumina. Some more techniques, particularly the recent interest on sol-gel method, will be also elaborated in the case of zirconia. This is described in the chapters 2 and 3, after a quite exhaustive discussion on the relevant theoretical aspects in chapter 1. Since one of our goals is to make high strength materials, the chapter 4 is devoted on the mechanical properties of nano materials together with an adequate dose of fracture mechanics, which is important to understand the behaviour of fracture of brittle materials or ‘materials failure’ during their use.
