Advanced Materials Research
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.
The aim of this volume is to disseminate information on the best practices for Photonics Materials and Devices, Optical Materials and Devices, NEMS/MEMS Materials and Devices, Electronic Materials and Instruments, Modeling, Simulation and Applications, etc. It offers an opportunity for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to address the most innovative research and development concepts, including technical challenges and social and economic issues, and to expound their ideas, results, work in progress and experience concerning all aspects of Optical and Electronic Materials and Applications.
This book comprises 62 peer-reviewed papers on the topics of Nanoscience and Materials Technology, and has the aim of promoting the development of Nanoscience and Materials Technology, strengthening international academic cooperation and communications and exchanging research ideas. This work provides readers with a broad overview of the latest advances in the field of Nanoscience and Materials Technology.
The First International Conference on Energy and Environmental Protection (ICEEP 2012) was organized by the Inner Mongolia University in Hohhot, China, and took place on the 23rd and 24th June, 2012. The ICEEP2012 brought together experts from a range of disciplines, with the intent of discussing problems and their solutions, of identifying new issues, of shaping future directions for research in these areas, as well as helping industrial users to apply advanced techniques. The present volumes contain selected papers which provide up-to-date, comprehensive and worldwide state-of-the art knowledge in the fields of Engineering Thermophysics; Thermal Engineering; Power Machinery and Engineering; Fluids, Fluid Machinery and Engineering; HVAC, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration; Power Systems and Automation; High Voltage and Insulation Technology; Motors and Electrical; Electrical Theory and Electrical Devices; Power Electronics and Power Drives.
These are the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Automation, Communication, Architectonics and Materials (ACAM 2012), held on the 23rd and 24th June, 2012, in Hefei, China: an invaluable fund of original ideas and new visual angles on all aspects of Materials and Mechanics in Architectonics and Materials Engineering.
These are the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Machinery, Materials Science and Engineering Applications ( MMSE 2012 ) held on the 16 and 17th June, 2012, in Wuhan, China. The object was to strengthen national academic exchanges and cooperation in the field, to promote the rapid development of machinery, materials science and engineering application and to improve China's machinery more effectively.
The present volumes contain selected papers providing worldwide state-of-the art knowledge in the fields of thin film and nano materials, composites, coatings, high-temperature alloys, rare-earth materials, energy materials, biological materials, materials strength, design and simulation, and materials processing. This wealth of up-to-date comprehensive information will be of value to anyone working in these domains.
