Free Access to New Reference Module Articles: Materials Science and Materials Engineering
The Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering provides a one-stop interdisciplinary resource that is continuously advancing as science advances. As a taster we are providing free access to the following articles taken from the innovative Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering:
- Introduction to Mechanical Testing By Thomas J. Whitney
- Metallic Thin-Walled Tubes for Crashworthiness Applications By Ahmad Baroutaji, Mustafa Sajjia, and Abdul-Ghani Olabi
- Design of Fiber Composite Aerospace Structures Under Vibration Loads By Horst Baier
- Production Technology in Aeronautics: Upscaling Technologies From Lab to Shop Floor By Michael Kupke, Tobias Gerngross
*Articles are free access until 31st October 2017
- The Reference Module combines thousands of essential articles and chapters from 13 of Elsevier’s leading Reference Works to create one interdisciplinary resource on ScienceDirect.
- Articles are continuously reviewed and updated by the expert editorial board and new articles are commissioned to cover the latest research.
- They are hosted on ScienceDirect for quick, efficient and effective searches with dynamic links to journal articles, providing your starting point for research.
- Just as in real-life, the Reference Module treats topics in context rather than in isolation. Covering all areas of the field, the Reference Module provides understanding of the whole spectrum of the subject, essential for researchers and scholars working across multiple disciplines.
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.
