We are pleased to announce the release of a new book published by our Chief Scientist, Dr. Frank Abdi. The book, titled "Characterization of Nanocomposites: Technology and Industrial Application" covers the subject of advanced multiscale hybrid materials which are being produced in the industry, studied by universities, and used in several applications. Unlike macromaterials, it is difficult to obtain the physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nanomaterials because of the scale. Designers, however, must have knowledge of these properties to perform any finite element analysis or durability and damage tolerance analysis. This is the book that brings this knowledge within easy reach.

'"Alpha STAR's GENOA and MCQ-Composites have given us the edge in safely designing ceramic hot engine components subject to engine environments. Verifications with coupons, elements and components subject to temperature, creep, fatigue, micro-cracking, fiber rupture, recession, and for certain materials oxidation, and thermal & environmental barrier coatings have all been performed. In-situ damages are accurately assessed at the micromechanical material level with MCQ Ceramics and can be tracked with GENOA at the structural level accounting for specific architecture, defects, and manufacturing residual stresses and other anomalies."'
