About the book

Ceramic materials have attracted the attention of scientists, researchers, and engineers due to their potential to manipulate the length scale in nanometers. These materials possess excellent properties which give them a variety of industrial uses, including automotive, aerospace, biomedical, cutting tools, and other industries rely on a number of their uses. This book provides a comprehensive overview of smart and advanced ceramic materials and their applications.

The first part is devoted to ceramics and processes. It discusses the types of ceramic materials, their characteristics as well as their fabrication methods. The second part focuses on both ceramics-based nanomaterials and ceramic sensors. The third part provides an overview of smart ceramics materials, which refers to ceramic materials prepared from ultrafine particles. These materials play a crucial role in challenging applications like biomedical and dental applications. The advanced ceramic materials are given in the fourth part. The last part of the book discusses the applications, including biomedical, cutting tools, energy, aerospace, automotive, and others.

The book will benefit scientists, researchers, engineers, and in the industry and research laboratories; academics who are interested in traditional, smart, and advanced ceramic materials; and students pursuing their postgraduate, graduate, and undergraduate degrees in composites, powder metallurgy, nanomaterials, engineering, manufacturing, and ceramic materials.
