Mechanics of Masonry Structures Strengthened with Composite Materials II
Editors:
Angelo Di Tommaso, Cristina Gentilini and Giovanni Castellazzi
Online since:
July 2017
Periodical and volume:
Key Engineering Materials Vol. 747
Description:

This volume is a collection of edited scientific papers presented at the International Conference on Mechanics of Masonry Structures Strengthened with Composites Materials (MuRiCo5) held in Bologna, Italy (June 28-30, 2017). The aim of this book is to present and review the latest achievements in modelling, testing and controlling masonry structures strengthened with composite materials. The innovative strengthening apparatus here considered consists in composites with continuous fibres (carbon, aramid, glass, PBO, …) reinforcing polymer or inorganic matrices. The special problems regarding the strengthening of monumental historic constructions, considering appropriate techniques in the domain of Architecture Structural Conservation, are focused in many scientific articles authored by eminent scientists.

Advanced Materials and Processes of Metalworking II
Editors:
Rudolf Kawalla, Fedor V. Grechnikov, Ekaterina A. Nosova and Yaroslav A. Erisov
Online since:
July 2017
Periodical and volume:
Key Engineering Materials Vol. 746
Description:
Increase of aerospace techniques’ weight efficiency, durability and safety is commonly determined by a structure and properties of structural materials and products made by metal forming. In particular, a large plastic strain together with the heat treatment forms a crystallography, physical, mechanical and deformation properties of billets, which hereinafter determines their behavior in metal forming processes and performance.
This collection of papers based on results of the International science and technical congress on Aerospace materials plastic deformation processes. Science, technology, industry (METALDEFORM-2017, July 4-7, 2017, Samara University, Samara, Russia).
