What the reviews say:

'The editors and chapter authors are to be congratulated on producing a substantial and timely statement on this important and actively developing technique. ...a reference work and marker for others to aim at. ... The text is very detailed, providing a mass of information rarely found in one book covering a well demarcated subject. The book should have much appeal to practitioners, students and those concerned with the development of the technique. ... A worthy addition to the serious technologist's and engineer's library'.
