Engineering Materials and Processes

Engineering Materials and Processes
43 Volumes | 2002 - 2018


The Engineering Materials and Processes series focuses on all forms of materials and the processes used to synthesise and formulate them as they relate to the various engineering disciplines.
The series deals with a diverse range of materials: ceramics; metals (ferrous and non-ferrous); semiconductors; composites, polymers, biomimetics etc. Each monograph in the series is written by a specialist and demonstrates how enhancements in materials and the processes associated with them can improve performance in the field of engineering in which they are used.

Professor Derby and Springer welcome new book ideas from potential authors. If you are interested in writing for the series please contact: Anthony Doyle (Executive Editor - Engineering, Springer) at
