Applied Mechanics and Materials
This collection gathers together new research results on mechatronic and automation systems; bringing together worldwide industrial and academic researchers, developers and users and their state-of-the-art results. This work will help to lead to the exploration of new areas of research and development, and to discussions of the emerging issues facing mechatronic and automation systems.
In this collection of peer-reviewed papers are to be found many original ideas and new angles on all aspects of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.
The work is divided into: Chapter 1: Mechanical Engineering, Design and Materials Science, Chapter 2: Materials Engineering, Industry and Manufacturing Engineering, Chapter 3: Intelligent Materials, Information Engineering and Energy Engineering, Chapter 4: Design Science, Materials and Mechanical Manufacturing Technology. A comprehensive and very current guide to the subject matter.
Original contributions to the experimental, analytical and numerical modelling of processes related to advanced materials. Research work may investigate the interactions between the manufacture (machining, forming …) and behaviour or structures of advanced materials. For damage analysis using non-destructive testing (NDT), new measurement techniques, with or without contact, and the development of new means of process control are always welcome. Improvements in the integrity of structures, cost reduction in manufacturing and increases in productivity lead, for instance, to the substitution of welding and bonding processes for mechanical assembly processes. The present-day challenge is to design and process high-quality welded and bonded joints in order to enhance the durability of assemblies. This work should thus be read by anyone wishing to keep up with the field.
Various research topics fall under the rubric of Structure: e.g. material damage leading to crack growth and/or fatigue of structures under dynamic loading or impact, durability and reliability of structures, numerical simulation and experimental work involving large deformations and impact associated with various experimental techniques. With regard to experimental studies, many non-destructive tests have been developed during recent years in order to deliver more accurate data. Therefore, papers dealing with the processing, characterization and physical properties determination of materials and structures fall under this heading. Finally, it also covers aspects of computer software, numerical models and advanced simulation algorithms. Specific applications of modeling and simulation in science and engineering, together with the relevant applied mathematical techniques, are also covered.
