The development of new engineering materials and technologies continues at a rapid pace. However, the application and dissemination of many of these materials and technologies is especially limited with regard to their incorporation into integrated design in urban eco-technologies, their market perspectives and their timely contribution to the existing and future requirements of mankind. The topics covered in this volume include: nanomaterials, materials for energy, metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, biomaterials, thin films and materials processing. The work is sure to have a stimulating effect in the development of new ideas.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Materials scientists and engineers from academia, government, and business explore engineering and architectural issues in achieving excellence of products or services in urban eco-technology. The 20 papers, a small selection from the presentations, consider such topics as slowly relaxing structural defects of zinc films with excited states induced by ion recombination processes, the effects of plates position in vertical casting producing thin wall ductile iron, analytical and experimental models of porosity formation of duralumin cast in vacuum casting systems, determining copper dissolution activation energy in concentrated hydrogen peroxide, and the electrical conductivity of oil palm fiber carbon.
