“... an excellent guide to understanding the impact of the engineering process of new products
and processes which are essential for our growth and enhanced quality of life. The process
has far-reaching and long-term implications, both good and bad, and this book provides an
opportunity to consider how developments are done, not just the end result.”
—Alan S. Weinberg, Vice President Global Technology, Cryovac (Retired), USA
“[The author] uses analysis of well-known historical and current events from many areas of human
experience that underline the techniques he is reinforcing for successful processing of high-
performance materials. This format should resonate with many R&D engineers, design engineers,
and manufacturing engineers as well as other related manufacturing professionals, who will be
able to identify with the examples given.”
—John Simpson, Retired Project Engineer, USA
“This book is comprehensive and exhaustive in understanding the issues encountered in developing
and manufacturing a fit-for-use high-performance material or product, and in validating its
reliability and consistency in both lab scale trials and real application conditions. I like the
narrative style and the numerous and enlightening real-world case studies ... .”
––Francesco Arena, Program Director Fluids Europe, Sealed Air, Italy
Most processed materials retain a memory of their production process at the molecular level.
Subtle changes—such as variations in temperature or the presence of impurities—can impart
performance benefits or drawbacks to individual batches. Some product developers have taken
advantage of this process dependency to tailor properties to specific customer needs. In other
cases, poorly engineered processes have resulted in serious failures. Process Techniques for
Engineering High-Performance Materials explores practical strategies to guide you in
systematically developing, improving, and producing engineered materials.
