About the book

Ceramic materials are inorganic compounds formed of metallic or semi-metallic and non-metallic elements, which are processed and may be used at high temperatures to achieve desirable properties. Ceramic materials may be crystalline or partly crystalline. Ceramics are favored compared to other materials because of their excellent properties like high hardness, low thermal conductivity, brittleness, and chemical stability. Over the past decade, a number of new ceramic materials have been developed with novel processing technologies.

This book aims to offer readers a comprehensive understanding of ceramic materials. The detailed guidance provided in this book will help not only the students, researchers and professionals in the field of materials science and allied disciplines but the researchers and professionals in other fields.

The book aims to provide the latest developments on the advanced ceramics and their latest applications in a wide variety of fields. The key features of this book intend to provide the reader with an understanding of how ceramics are applied, explores recent characteristics and properties of these materials, taking into account their structures and compositions, and discusses the various processing of ceramics.

This book will rapidly become the reference work on the subject of ceramic materials.
