Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Three hundred plus papers from the April 2011 conference present the results of research on manufacturing process technology, material engineering, mechanical design, and manufacturing systems. The first volume explores mechanical transmission, dynamics, reliability, friction and wear, vibration, noise analysis, and control. Volume two collects different approaches to design optimization, simulation, heat transfer analysis, and mechanical engineering education. Three papers from Nanchang University study the electroless plating process while two papers from Shenyang Aerospace University calculate the response of a vehicle skeleton and propose a reliability assessment model for small data samples. Other topics include ink flow in an offset press, the design of a piston head, a cabinet for a drum washing machine, and a cutting head for a hard rock boring machine. B&w diagrams and photographs are provided.
