A comprehensive textbook that addresses the recent interest in nanotechnology in the engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics communities In recent years, nanotechnology has become one of the most promising and exciting fields of science, triggering an increasing number of university engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics departments to introduce courses on this emerging topic. Now, Drs. Owens and Poole have revised, updated, and revamped their 2003 work, Introduction to Nanotechnology, to make it more accessible as a textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses on the fascinating field of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids takes a pedagogical approach to the subject and assumes only an introductory understanding of the physics and chemistry of macroscopic solids and models developed to explain properties, such as the theory of phonon and lattice vibrations and electronic band structure. The authors describe how properties depend on size in the nanometer regime and explain why these changes occur using relatively simple models of the physics and chemistry of the solid state. Additionally, this accessible book: Provides an introductory overview of the basic principles of solids Describes the various methods used to measure the properties of nanosolids Explains how and why properties change when reducing the size of solids to nano-dimensions, and what they predict when one or more dimensions of a solid has a nano-length Presents data on how various properties of solids are affected by nanosizing and examines why these changes occur Contains a chapter entirely devoted to the importance of carbon nanostructured materials and the potential applications of carbon nanostructures The Physics and Chemistry of Nanosolids is complete with a series of exercises at the end of each chapter for readers to enhance their understanding of the material presented, making this an ideal textbook for students and a valuable tutorial for technical professionals and researchers who are interested in learning more about this important topic.

Bis vor einigen Jahren konnten nur wenige Autofahrer über Funk erreicht werden. Seit der Einführung des Funktelefonnetzes C sind in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland schon über 100 000 Autotelefone in Gebrauch, und die geplanten D-Netze werden in Europa sogar die Teilnahme von über 10 Millionen Autofahrern ermöglichen. Sie gestatten es, außer Sprache auch Buchstaben und Zahlen zu übertragen. Das Autoradio ist seit Einführung des Verkehrsfunks nicht nur Quelle der Unterhaltung, sondern auch Quelle vielfältiger Informationen. Der bevorstehende Einsatz von Ortungs- und Navigationsgeräten wird es dem Autofahrer erleichtern, sein Ziel sicher zu erreichen. Zukünftig wird der Autofahrer sowohl von terrestrischen als auch von Satellitenstationen entweder nur für ihn bestimmte oder von ihm aus einem großen Angebot ausgewählte Informationen empfangen können. Die informationstechnische Isolation des Automobils von der Außenwelt wird durch die zukünftige Mobilkommunikation überwunden werden. Das Ziel des Kongresses war eine umfassende Bestandsaufnahme der aktuellen und der zukünftigen Kommunikationsmöglichkeiten vom und zum Automobil.

In recent years, the application of composite materials hasincreased in various areas of science and technology due to theirspecial properties, namely for use in the aircraft, automotive,defence, aerospace and other advanced industries. Machiningcomposite materials is quite a complex task owing to itsheterogenity, and to the fact that reinforcements are extremelyabrasive. In modern engineering, high demands are placed oncomponents made of composites in relation to their dimensionalprecision as well as their surface quality. Due to these potentialapplications, there is a great need to understand the questionsassociated with machining composite materials. This book aims to provide the fundamentals and the recentadvances in the machining of composite materials (polymers, metalsand ceramics) for modern manufacturing engineering. The three partsof the book cover the machining of polymeric, metal and ceramicmatrix composites. This book can be used as a text book for the final year of anundergraduate engineering course or for those studyingmachining/composites at the postgraduate level. It can also serveas a useful work of reference for academics, manufacturing andmaterials researchers, manufacturing and mechanical engineers, andprofessionals in composite technology and related industries.

The surface characterizations of engineering materials effects their scratch/abrasion/Mar resistance, coating adhesion/strength, and abrasive wear mechanism. Scratching of Materials and Applications has chapters devoted to direct industrial application and contains some of the important works that are being conducted. Scratch testing of materials has grown extensively since the earlier days of the Mohs Scale for ranking minerals according to their relative scratch resistance. This test has been used on metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers and coatings of various types and thicknesses. The chapters are grouped according to the type of the engineering materials used. The beginning chapters relate mostly to bulk polymers, which are followed by different types of coatings (hard wear resistant to the diamond-like carbon coatings) and finally, chapters on the application of scratching technique to metals and ceramics are included at the end of the book. Thus, the book covers a fairly wide spectrum of engineering materials which are useful to engineers and researchers. * Balances theoretical science with practical application * Demonstrates real-life applications within industry * Written experts in the fields of materials, tribology and surface mechanics
