Corrosion Control and Surface Finishing Book Review:

This book deals with the surface finishing for corrosion prevention from the viewpoint of environmental friendliness. Surface finishing for metallic materials or by metallic materials has excellent corrosion resistance, wear resistance and good color tones, which have been useful for practical applications so far. However, environmental friendliness and user friendliness have become important factors for practical use since the turn of the century. Surface Finishing Industries are now facing a serious crossroad to continue sustainable developments in the future. Sadly, the concept of environmental friendliness is very new, because from the beginning of this discipline (surface finishing), not many people considered the environmental effects so seriously, but sought mainly for the functions, performance, characteristics, and economic profits. Since the biological evaluation processes are very advanced and still debated, this book is very unique and advanced. This book aims to let university students know and learn the concept of environmental friendliness and its relation to surface treatment products based on the fundamental knowledge about conventional corrosion control and surface finishing. The textbook will be used most effectively with subjects such as surface science, surface engineering, mechanical materials, etc. for those studying mechanical engineering, materials engineering and chemical engineering. It is also applicable to practical engineers and researchers in the industrial world as well as the academic one. Throughout this book, readers learn and appreciate the environmentally friendly approaches that are presented for corrosion control and surface finishing.

Engineering Design Applications III Book Review:

This book provides an update on recent advances in various areas of modern engineering design, such as mechanical, materials, computer, and process engineering, which provide the foundation for the development of improved structures, materials, and processes. The modern design cycle is characterized by the interaction of different disciplines and a strong shift toward computer-based approaches involving only a small number of experiments for verification purposes. A major driver for this development is the increased demand for cost reduction, which is also connected to environmental demands. In the transportation industry (e.g. automotive or aerospace), where there is a demand for greater fuel efficiency, one solution is lighter structures and/or improved processes for energy conversion. Another emerging area is the interaction of classical engineering with the health and medical sector.

Engineering Design Applications Book Review:

This volume gives an overview on recent developments for various applications of modern engineering design. Different engineering disciplines such as mechanical, materials, computer and process engineering provide the foundation for the design and development of improved structures, materials and processes. The modern design cycle is characterized by an interaction of different disciplines and a strong shift to computer-based approaches where only a few experiments are performed for verification purposes. A major driver for this development is the increased demand for cost reduction, which is also connected to environmental demands. In the transportation industry (e.g. automotive or aerospace), this is connected with the demand for higher fuel efficiency, which is related to the operational costs and the lower harm for the environment. One way to fulfil such requirements are lighter structures and/or improved processes for energy conversion. Another emerging area is the interaction of classical engineering with the health and medical sector. In this book, many examples of the mentioned design applications are presented.

Willmore Energy and Willmore Conjecture Book Review:

This book is the first monograph dedicated entirely to Willmore energy and Willmore surfaces as contemporary topics in differential geometry. While it focuses on Willmore energy and related conjectures, it also sits at the intersection between integrable systems, harmonic maps, Lie groups, calculus of variations, geometric analysis and applied differential geometry. Rather than reproducing published results, it presents new directions, developments and open problems. It addresses questions like: What is new in Willmore theory? Are there any new Willmore conjectures and open problems? What are the contemporary applications of Willmore surfaces? As well as mathematicians and physicists, this book is a useful tool for postdoctoral researchers and advanced graduate students working in this area.

Defects at Oxide Surfaces Book Review:

This book presents the basics and characterization of defects at oxide surfaces. It provides a state-of-the-art review of the field, containing information to the various types of surface defects, describes analytical methods to study defects, their chemical activity and the catalytic reactivity of oxides. Numerical simulations of defective structures complete the picture developed. Defects on planar surfaces form the focus of much of the book, although the investigation of powder samples also form an important part. The experimental study of planar surfaces opens the possibility of applying the large armoury of techniques that have been developed over the last half-century to study surfaces in ultra-high vacuum. This enables the acquisition of atomic level data under well-controlled conditions, providing a stringent test of theoretical methods. The latter can then be more reliably applied to systems such as nanoparticles for which accurate methods of characterization of structure and electronic properties have yet to be developed. The book gives guidance to tailor oxide surfaces by controlling the nature and concentration of defects. The importance of defects in the physics and chemistry of metal oxide surfaces is presented in this book together with the prominent role of oxides in common life. The book contains contributions from leaders in the field. It serves as a reference for experts and beginners in the field.
