Materials Characterization

Modern Methods and Applications

edited by Narayanaswami Ranganathan

"This book treats the very important aspect of the local and global properties of a wide range of materials, covering metals, polymers, rubber and composites. The mechanical properties covered include static properties like modulus, creep behavior at different temperatures at local and global scales, as well as fatigue behavior by nano-impact or conventional coupon testing. The applications cover aeronautical, medical, automobile and nuclear fields. The book also contains a comprehensive treatment of the nanoindentation technique and its applications to materials science. It is a must-have for academics, researchers and students interested in the field of materials characterization, modelling and material damage evaluation."
