Smart Technologies for Materials
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special volume comprises selected papers from the 2012 International Conference on Smart Technologies for Materials and Communication (ICSTMC2012), which was held on the 15 and 16th March 2012 in Melbourne, Australia. The papers are grouped into the topic headings of Materials and Technology, Mechanical Systems and Structures.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Selected from over 220 submissions, 23 papers report on recent research into materials processing using advanced technologies. The topics include coating postponed-set mortar with a single-screw extruder, the induced synthesis of hydroxyapatite by chitosan for enamel remineralization, an experimental study of the mechanical performance of shale lightweight aggregate concrete, friction and wear mechanism between rubber and nickel for water lubricated bearings, and the numerical simulation of the failure process in a girder bridge under seismic influence.
