  • Globalization of Materials R D

    Globalization of Materials R&D
    National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, National Materials Advisory Board, Committee on Globalization of Materials Research and Development

    To better understand this trend and its implications for the U.S. economy and national security, the Department of Defense asked the National Research Council to assess the status and impacts of the global spread of MSE R&D. This book …

  • Effects of adhesive formulation and age on strength of bonded butt joints

    Effects of adhesive formulation and age on strength of bonded butt joints
    John Thomas Quirk, Theodore Thomas Kozlowski, Richard Frederick Blomquist

    Effects of formulation and age of adhesive on joint strength were studied on butt joints of slash pine bonded with an epoxy-resin adhesive.

  • Free close molding versus molding to stops in wood resin blend processing

    Free-close molding versus molding to stops in wood-resin blend processing
    Charles J. Gatchell, B. G. Heebink, Forest Products Laboratory (U.S.), University of Wisconsin

    The properties evaluated were modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity, dimensional stability, water absorption, and flow. Flow was considered to be the ability of a blend to move in directions at right angles to an applied force.

  • Review of Toxicologic and Radiologic Risks to Military Personnel from Exposure to Depleted Uranium During and After Combat

    Review of Toxicologic and Radiologic Risks to Military Personnel from Exposure to Depleted Uranium During and After Combat
    Committee on Toxicology, Committee on Toxicologic and Radiologic Effects from Exposure to Depleted Uranium During and After Combat, Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology, Division on Earth and Life Studies, National Research Council

    The book recommends that the Army re-evaluate the basis for some of its predictions about health outcomes at low levels of exposure, but, overall, the Capstone Report was judged to provide a reasonable characterization of the exposure and …

  • Midsize Facilities

    Midsize Facilities
    Committee on Smaller Facilities, Solid State Sciences Committee, Board on Physics and Astronomy, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, National Research Council

    With support from the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, the National Research Council carried out a study to characterize and discuss ways to optimize investments in materials research facility infrastructure with …

    Vladimir Kochergin

    For the first time, omnidirectional short-pass, band pass, band-blocking and narrow band-pass filter designs are explained in detail.For graduate and undergraduate students interested in optics, photonics and MEMS, this book will give a …

  • Selection of Polymeric Materials

    Selection of Polymeric Materials
    E. Alfredo Campo

    For the first time this book provides a simple and efficient approach to a highly complex and time consuming task.

  • Degradable Polymers

    Degradable Polymers
    G. Scott

    The emphasis in degradable polymers has changed since the first edition of this book. Biomedical and agricultural applications remain important topics of scientific and commercial interest in the second edition.
