There are books aplenty on materials selection criteria for engineering design. Most cover the physical and mechanical properties of specific materials, but few offer much in the way of total product design criteria. This innovative new text/reference will give the “Big picture view of how materials should be selected—not only for a desired function but also for their ultimate performance, durability, maintenance, replacement costs, and so on. Even such factors as how a material behaves when packaged, shipped, and stored will be taken into consideration. For without that knowledge, a design engineer is often in the dark as to how a particular material used in particular product or process is going to behave over time, how costly it will be, and, ultimately, how successful it will be at doing what is supposed to do. This book delivers that knowledge. * Brief but comprehensive review of major materials functional groups (mechanical, electrical, thermal, chemical) by major material categories (metals, polymers, ceramics, composites) * Invaluable guidance on selection criteria at early design stage, including such factors as functionality, durability, and availability * Insight into lifecycle factors that affect choice of materials beyond simple performance specs, including manufacturability, machinability, shelf life, packaging, and even shipping characteristics * Unique help on writing materials selection specifications

Soft material-enabled electronics offer distinct advantage, over conventional rigid and bulky devices, for numerous wearable and implantable applications. Soft materials allow for seamless integration with skin and tissues due to enhanced mechanical flexibility and stretchability. Wearable devices, such as sensors, offer continuous, real-time monitoring of biosignals and movements, which can be applied in rehabilitation and diagnostics, among other applications. Soft implantable electronics offer similar functionalities, but with improved compatibility with human tissues. Biodegradable soft implantable electronics are also being developed for transient monitoring, such as in the weeks following surgery. To further advance soft electronics, materials, integration strategies, and fabrication techniques are being developed. This paper reviews recent progress in these areas, toward the development of soft material-enabled electronics for medicine, healthcare, and human-machine interfaces.

Author Greg Votolato presents the intricate story of how design evolved as a profession and a leisure activity. Votolato demonstrates that design in affluent American culture is as much about personalization of the material world as it is about the performance and appearance of manufactured goods. 114 illustrations.

The book summarizes the history and current status of the development of gas turbine engines and ancillary equipment using ceramic hot section components. Specifically, the book focuses on the evolution of component and engine designs, and the demonstration of design concepts through rig and engine testing of the ceramic gas turbine programs in the United States, Japan, Western Europe, and the countries of the former Soviet Union (primarily Russia). The 33 chapters cover ceramic gas turbine design in small gas turbines for automotive and cogeneration applications, midsize industrial and larger utility gas turbines, and aircraft and aeroderivative applications. Almost all the book chapters have been prepared by technical personnel who are intimately involved in the development and demonstration of the ceramic gas turbine designs at their companies. The book will be of interest to engineering and management personnel at turbomachinery equipment manufacturers, development and fabrication personnel at suppliers of ceramic materials and components, researchers in government and private laboratories, teaching staff and students at technical colleges and universities, and personnel involved in planning and monitoring technology development programs. The theme emphasized throughout the book are the 'lessons learned' from almost 40 years of ceramic gas turbine design and test experience. Learning directly from the experience of the researchers that took the ceramic gas turbine through the concept, preliminary, and detail design phases, while following the literative design-test process cycles, is a unique way of becoming quickly familiar with the design challenges and solutions for using ceramics in gas turbine equipment. The book also amply demonstrates the hurdles that had to be overcome to generate functional and durable component design, as well as challenges that remain for the full-scale commercialization of the ceramic gas turbine.
