Applied Mechanics and Materials
The object of this special volume is to disseminate state-of-the-art information on the best practices for advanced mechanical engineering and sustainable materials and green manufacturing, and addresses the problems and opportunities offered by the prospect of a sustainable future. It will encourage engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to embrace the most innovative research and development ideas in order better to confront technical challenges and social and economic issues arising from all aspects of advanced mechanical engineering and green manufacturing.
The present papers, drawn from both academia and industry, reflect the international flavour of this event; devoted to the topics of: Materials Science and Engineering, Materials Properties, Measuring Methods and Applications, Methodology of Research and Analysis and Modelling, Materials Manufacturing and Processing, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Mechanical Engineering, Design and Manufacturing, etc.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
All of the accepted papers are to be found in this special volume, which addresses the hottest issues in mechatronics and materials. The volume covers a wide range of topics, including mechatronics materials, mechatronics, materials engineering, engineering mechanics, etc.
Following the great progress made in Computational Mechanics and Materials, the 2011 International Workshop on Computational Mechanics, Materials and Engineering Applications (CMMEA 2011) aimed at providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art developments in Computational Mechanics and Engineering Applications, Building Materials, Geotechnical & Soil Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering Applications. The emphasis was placed on basic methodologies, scientific developments and engineering applications.
This volume focuses on the development of methods, for predicting the behaviour of materials, so as to be able to design materials having specific properties. This requires a multi-scale material modeling framework that is based upon the fundamental laws of physics and links the electronic modeling hierarchy all the way from the atomistic and mesoscale modeling regimes up to macroscopic material behaviour. It is evident that such a framework cannot be based upon rigid formal parameterizations alone, but must emerge from a detailed understanding of the mechanistic behaviour of materials, a profound knowledge of material properties and metallurgical trends, and must take account of the processing of materials as the basis of dynamic structure/property relationships.
The 177 papers are grouped into the chapters:
Mechanical Power Engineering,
Automatic and Mechanics Engineering,
Optical Electrical Magnetic and Composite Materials,
Mechatronic Systems Modeling and Identification,
Mechatronics Engineering and Applications,
Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Technology,
Sensors and Detection,
Fault Diagnosis and Signal Processing,
Image Processing in Engineering Design,
Computer-Aided Design and Simulation, and
Systems Analysis and Decision.
The work serves as a briefing on the current state-of-the-art of this important topic.
In these proceedings are to be found many original ideas and new points of view concerning Intelligent Materials, Applied Mechanics and Design Science. They offered an excellent opportunity for researchers to exchange their innovative ideas and new perspectives, and the resultant contents will provide invaluable guidance to scientists, physicists, chemists, lecturers and others, worldwide.
