This new book presents new ceramic information in two parts. The first section presents state-of-the-art information on new measurements and characterization methods in the ceramic manufacturing process including characterization of mechanical properties microstructure, and machining techniques, as well as the status on the activity of standards in ceramics. The second part is a selection of peer reviewed research papers in this field.

This volume will prove indispensable for academic as well as industry researchers and for anyone seeking broader knowledge on the quality improvements through new measurements and processing technology.
