Fabrication of Heat-Resistant and Plastic-Formable Silicon Nitride

In this book, improvements in the heat resistance of silicon nitride (Si3N4) ceramics using grain boundary control and in plasticity at high temperatures using grain size control in order to reduce the cost of shaping Si3N4 are described. The heat re

The NIMS Monographs are published by the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), a leading public research institute in materials science in Japan, in collaboration with Springer. The series present research results achieved by NIMS researchers through their studies on materials science as well as current scientific and technological trends in those research fields. These monographs provide readers up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge about fundamental theories and principles of materials science as well as practical technological knowledge about materials synthesis and applications. With their practical case studies the monographs in this series will be particularly useful to newcomers to the field of materials science and to scientists and engineers working in universities, industrial research laboratories, and public research institutes. These monographs will be also available for textbooks for graduate students. National Institute for Materials Science http://www.nims.go.jp/
