Advanced Materials Research
This issue of Advanced Materials Research having the title, Advances in Materials and Systems Technologies III, is a collection of peer-reviewed papers selected from those presented at the 2010 International Conference on Engineering Research and Development: Advances in Engineering, Science and Technology (ICERD2010) held at the University of Benin, Nigeria on September 7–9th, 2010. The papers are divided into the chapters: Construction and Structures; Electrical and Electronic Technology; Information and Communication Technology; Manufacturing Systems; Materials Processing; Oil and Gas, Renewable Energy; Solid Minerals Technology; Systems Design and Analysis; Tools, Machines and Equipment; Water, Waste and Environment. The result is an up-to-date overview of the field.
In this collection of peer-reviewed papers are to be found original ideas and new points of view on aspects of materials engineering, architectural engineering and informatization. Herein, researchers exchange innovative ideas from new perspectives; thus providing guidance to scientists, physicists, chemists, teachers and others worldwide.
These are the proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Future Materials Engineering and Industrial Application, held on August 4-5th, 2011 in Bali, Indonesia. The objective of ICFMEIA 2011 was to provide a forum within which researchers, educators, engineers, and government officials involved in the general areas of Future Materials Engineering and Industrial Applications could disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on the possible future research directions of these fields. The result is an up-to-date guide to the subject.
The 104 peer-reviewed papers included here were selected from those presented at the International Conference on Nanomaterials Synthesis and Characterization (INSC2011) held at the Mines Wellness Hotel, Seri Kembangan, Selangor, Malaysia from the 4th to 5th July 2011. The volume mainly covers the synthesis of nanomaterials and related researches and will bring the reader fully up to date with these topics.
The peer-reviewed contents cover the subjects of environmental chemistry and biology, environmental materials, environmental safety and health, environmental planning and assessment, environmental analysis and monitoring, environmental engineering, pollution control (air, water, solid), waste disposal and recycling, water supply and drainage engineering, noise and vibration control, clean production processes, hydrology and water resources engineering, soil and water conservation and desertification control, environmental protection, plant protection, and land resources environment and urban planning. This extensive coverage makes the work a veritable handbook.
This work comprises 137 peer-reviewed papers selected from the proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Sustainable Construction Materials and Computer Engineering (ICSCMCE 2011) held in Kunming, China, on September 24-25th, 2011. ICSCMCE 2011 served as a forum for the exchange of expertise and was intended to draw the attention of researchers from various disciplines; such as construction materials, smart materials and engineering materials; thus making this a timely guide to those topics.
This volume comprises a collection of the papers presented at the 2011 International Conference on Smart Materials and Nanotechnology in Engineering (SMNE2011), held on September 17~18th, 2011, in Wuhan, China. The aim was to provide a platform where researchers, engineers, academics and industrialists from all over the world could present research results and developments in Smart Materials and Nanotechnology in Engineering. This makes the work an eminently up-to-date guide to those fields.
