Advanced Materials Innovation: Managing Global Technology in by Sanford L. Moskowitz

By Sanford L. Moskowitz

Via exact case experiences of crucial complex fabric creations of the latter twentieth and early twenty first century, the writer explores the function of the sphere of complex fabrics within the technological and financial job this day, with implications to the innovation method in general.

A complete learn that encompasses the 3 significant different types of complicated fabric applied sciences, i.e., Structural fabrics (metals and polymers), sensible fabrics (transistor, microchip and semiconductor laser) and Hybrid and New varieties of topic (liquid crystals and nanomaterials).
Extensive use of fundamental resources, together with unpublished interviews with the scientists, engineers, and marketers at the entrance traces of complicated fabrics creation
Original method of case research narrative, emphasizing interplay among the complicated fabric technique, perceived hazard and directing and accelerating step forward know-how

Example text

He had a particular fascination with metallurgy and the properties of molten metal. His career began in the late 1940s as a research physicist at International Harvester in Chicago where he took pictures of the internal structure of metals with an electron microscope. In the early 1950s, he took a position as chief engineer at the Illium Corporation, a foundry specializing in casting technology. Here, he invented a casting machine to make nozzles used in the meatpacking industry (it made sausages).

The fact that the war left these countries in rubble actually worked in their favor in the long run, for not having an existing and older infrastructure to deal with, they could begin anew, constructing their plants from scratch using the latest processes, equipment, and building designs. They were the first to adopt large-scale oxygen furnaces and successfully operate efficient electric steel minimills. American steel was slow to embrace such innovations. It had become complacent and eschewed any major effort to revamp in the face of a growing global competition.

The table has evolved from discussions with experts in the field, conference presentations, as well as from data, information, and analysis from secondary literature including government studies and articles within the technical and business press. The numbers shown are the percentages of total progress in performance accounted for by the introduction of advanced materials alone within each industrial sectors over those seven decades.
