Advances in Engineering Design and Optimization II
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This work covers Engineering Design Theory and Methodology, Product Design and Development, Simulation and Engineering Optimization, Manufacturing Systems Modeling and Optimization, Advanced Machining and Materials Processing Technology, as well as Engineering Mechanics and Application. The contents cover two main engineering problems: those that are directly related to the design and optimization of engineered products, and those that are related to the design and optimization of engineering processes. This book is an excellent guide to them both.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The two-volume set from the August 2011 conference presents recent research on the design and optimization of both engineered products and engineering processes. Two papers from Tianjin Polytechnic University assess the quality of polymethyl methacrylate laser transmission welding and temperature distribution in a metal powder stream during laser fabrication. Three papers from Zhejiang University propose laser local stripe bionic strengthening of mold surfaces to prolong the service life of dies. A study on the fuel economy of hybrid electric vehicles simulates fuel conversion in parallel HEVs and serial HEVs under high speed and low speed work conditions. Other topics of the 263 papers include safety evaluation of an overhead traveling crane, packaging foam for liquid crystal display, steering electromotor control of a pallet truck, and a web-based reverse engineering service center for helping small Chinese companies copy foreign products.
