While ceramic materials have proven increasingly important to modern technology with electronics, biomedical, communications, construction, mechanical, and many other engineering applications, most engineers and technologists receive little or no training in ceramics. This third edition of Modern Ceramic Engineering provides an introduction to the structure, properties, processing, design concepts, and applications of advanced ceramics. Updating the best-selling second edition with the advances in technology that have occurred since the previous edition, it emphasizes how and why ceramics differ from metals and organics and how to apply this knowledge to optimum materials selection. This book now also includes a study guide at the end of each chapter to help guide the reader to key points.
