New title: Titanium reference library DVD

Titanium reference library DVD By ASM International. G304925, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis: The Titanium Reference Library DVD provides a complete guide to the selection, designations, processing, properties, and performance of titanium and titanium alloys. All commercial grades of commercially pure titanium and titanium alloys are covered. Especially extensive coverage is provided for alloy Ti-6Al-4V, the workhorse of the titanium industry.

The fully searchable disc features 23 chapters from the ASM Handbook series; the complete content of the best-selling technical book Titanium: A Technical Guide, 2nd Edition; 191 alloy data sheets from Alloy Digest and the Materials Properties Handbook: Titanium and Titanium Alloys; 49 heat treating data sheets from the Heat Treater’s Guide; 272 engineering diagrams taken from ASM’s series of atlases; and 1995 binary and ternary phase diagrams from the ASM Alloy Phase Diagrams Center.

NEW title: Electronic structure methods for complex materials

Electronic structure methods for complex materials : the orthogonalized linear combination of atomic orbitals By Ching, Wai-Yim. TA403.6.C539, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis: Density functional theory (DFT) has blossomed in the past few decades into a powerful tool that is used by experimentalists and theoreticians alike. This book highlights the extensive contributions that the DFT-based OLCAO method has made to progress in this field, and it demonstrates its competitiveness for performing ab initio calculations on large and complex models of practical systems. A brief historical account and introduction to the elements of the theory set the stage for discussions on semiconductors, insulators, crystalline metals and alloys, complex crystals, non-crystalline solids and liquids, microstructure containing systems and those containing impurities, defects, and surfaces, biomolecular systems, and the technique of ab initio core level spectroscopy calculation.

NEW title: Advanced engineering electromagnetics

Advanced engineering electromagnetics By Balanis, Constantine A. QC760.B171 2012, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis: Balanis’ new edition of Advanced Engineering and Electromagnetics features new content on the basics of Metamaterials including figures to demonstrate their properties. Several small sections have been added on Mie series scattering by a PEC sphere; wedge diffraction by a wedge with surface impedances; and curve surface diffraction. Throughout the book, there are more helpful examples, end-of-chapter problems, and references as well as lecture notes in PowerPoint format. The revised edition also features MATLAB programs to animate some of the wave phenomena such as: propagation, reflection and refraction by planar interfaces; scattering by PEC circular cylinder, dielectric circular cylinder, dielectric coated PEC circular cylinder, and PEC sphere; and wedge defraction by 2-D PEC wedge.
