Metallurgy Technology and Materials
The objective of ICMTM 2012 was to present the latest research results of scientists and engineers in the fields of Metallurgy, Mining Engineering, Advanced Materials Science and Materials Processing Technology. The peer-reviewed papers are grouped into chapters: 1 - Advanced Materials and Technology in Metallurgy; 2 - Materials Engineering and Production Technologies.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The 59 papers in this collection were selected for presentation on the basis of their originality, clarity, and relevance to the conference themes of metallurgy, mining engineering, advanced materials science, and materials processing technology. Among the topics are synthesizing zinc oxide nanoparticles by solid state reactions and its influence on a zinc electrode, the effect of isothermal treatment on the microstructure and properties of high performance steel, simulation and casting processes for ductile iron wind generator rotor shaft, effects of additives on semiconduction transformation in lead zirconate titanate ceramic induced by atomic hydrogen, tungsten cathodes doped with rare earth for pulsed xenon lamps, and the shielding effect in the sacrificial anode cathodic protection system.
