Book Description

Readers will find that the second edition of Barsoum’s Fundamentals of Ceramics (PDF) provides an introduction to ceramic science that is both unusually clear and exhaustive. In this most recent version to the 2nd edition, problems have been updated, and additional worked examples have been added. Additionally, new chapter parts on computational materials science and case studies have been included.

The sections on computational materials science explain how the density functional theory and molecular dynamics calculations that are used today can shed valuable light on properties. This is particularly true for properties that are difficult to measure or visualize in any other way, such as surface energies, elastic constants, point defect energies, phonon modes, and so on. The Case Studies sections place a greater emphasis on applications, including things like optical fibers, solid oxide fuel cells, ultra-strong and thin glasses, glass-ceramics, alumina forming materials, strong and tough ceramics, fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites, thermal barrier coatings, the tiles that cover the space shuttle, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, field-assisted and microwave sintering, two-dimensional solids, and colossal magnetoresistance
