Advanced Materials Research
The reader is here presented with recent advances in the field of advanced manufacturing technology, including: forming, machining, automation, manufacturing systems, measurement, precision engineering, bio-manufacturing and green engineering. It is an excellent guide to recent multi-disciplinary integration in manufacturing technology.
In these proceedings are to be found many original ideas and new viewpoints concerning aspects of Energy Materials and Materials Applications. They are the outcome of a platform where researchers could exchange their innovative ideas with a new perspective. This work offers invaluable guidance to scientists, physicists, chemists, teachers and others, worldwide.
These are the proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Energy Materials, Chemical Engineering and Mining Engineering (EMCEM2012). The objective of the conference was to provide a forum where researchers in various fields, especially materials-related ones, could exchange their findings. The fulfillment of that objective is amply proved by the contents.
This work describes the latest advances in, and applications of, advanced rolling equipment and technology. The peer-reviewed articles cover a broad range of topics: advanced rolling processes, equipment and technologies of strip and plate; special rolling equipment and technologies; advanced shearing and straightening equipment and technologies; advanced testing instruments for rolling, shearing, leveling processes and rolled-metal quality; advanced automatic control technologies for rolling, shearing and leveling processes; mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of rolling, shearing and leveling processes; assembly and maintenance of rolling equipment. This book will be a useful reference for professionals working in the field of rolling equipment technology.
The design and market forces driving the never-ending quest for improved materials for aerospace vehicles include lower weight, improved corrosion and fatigue resistances and lower acquisition and operating costs. The application of composite materials to commercial aircraft, and their extrapolation to next-generation aircraft, has led to significant overall weight-savings; which translate into enhanced range, payload and endurance. The most significant current barriers to an increased use of composite materials are high manufacturing costs, poor reliability in estimating design and development costs, and the inability to predict accurately structural failure. As advanced composites having superior physical and mechanical properties are being eagerly sought, optimization of their processing, design parameters, failure modes and multifunctionality are also being sought. Hence activities in advanced materials focus on the Design and Analysis of Composite Materials, Processing of Polymer Composite Materials, Failure Mechanics of Composite Materials, Shape Memory Polymer Nanostructured Materials and Specialty Coating, Alloys and Metals.
