About the book

Due to the growth of the find, new engineering materials that can replace the already traditional, research, and applications on adhesives are increasing in academic and industrial areas. Adhesive bonding is a recent technology that in many applications, can replace the techniques already known in engineering, such as rivets, bolts, welds, etc. The adhesives have the advantage of being lightweight. The use of adhesives in engineering is already present in several areas, for example, aeronautics, nautical, renewable energy, mechanics, etc.
As the subject of adhesives is in constant development, this book's purpose is to get together information about adhesives science and technology, recent advances, and applications that use adhesive technology. Also, to make these contents available to engineering students, engineers, researchers, and the people interested in this topic. The book is expected to present works that aim to contribute to the development of new technologies and the use of non-traditional materials in engineering.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Tikel

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
