This work represents a new approach to ceramics research. The mechanical properties of ceramics and ceramic-based composites are well understood and have been studied extensively in the past. This more profound understanding of physical properties, such as particularly low or high thermal conductivties, radiation penetration depth, electrical and magnetic responses etc., can now lead to the development of new materials having improved properties. A good knowledge of the thermomechanical properties and degree of chemical inertness of the various ceramic materials is also of great importance. The book also puts particular emphasis on the practical design of new materials, such as polymer precursor derived ceramics and new laminted materials, and on recent advances in the low-cost processing of engineering ceramics.
