Comprehensive Materials Finishing
We are thrilled to announce that Comprehensive Materials Finishing will be publishing both in print and electronic version in September 2016! This interdisciplinary work brings together all known research in materials finishing, allowing users to become familiar with both theory and applications. Learn more about it here.
As an exclusive taster we are providing a free download of the chapter Laser-Based 3D Printing and Surface Texturing, taken from the forthcoming Major Reference Work below:
The highly interdisciplinary field of materials science examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in particular have yielded major innovations in this area, such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. Elsevier’s authoritative content in this area ranges from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationships between the structure of materials and their properties. Our journals (including Materials Today), books, and eBooks help researchers stay abreast of developments in this swiftly advancing field, coving major sub-disciplines like energy and power; metals and alloys; ceramics; composite materials; polymer science and biomaterials; interdisciplinary materials science; and structural materials.
