The birth of materials science began from the need for advanced space, defense and energy programme created the need for developing new materials and processes that can better fit the requirements for advanced applications, which propelled the concept of opening a number of materials research laboratories. Silicon nitride (Si3N4) is one of the most attractive advanced ceramic materials for structural applications that has been developed following many years of intensive research, due to its high strength at high temperature, good thermal stress resistance and good resistance to oxidation. Therefore, this ceramics are classified as important engineering materials. This book discusses the joining of silicon nitride ceramics, and the oxidation behaviors of Si3N4. (Imprint: Nova)
