Mechanical and Physico-Chemical Characteristics of Modified Materials: Performance Evaluation and Selection

Understanding chemical and solid materials and their properties and behavior is fundamental to chemical and engineering design. With some of the world's leading experts describing their most recent research, this book describes the procedures for material selection and design to ensure that the most suitable materials for a given application are identified from the full range of materials, chemicals, and section shapes available. Several case studies have been developed to further illustrate procedures and to add to the practical implementation of the text.
