Advanced Materials Research
These peer-reviewed papers record the invaluable researches of the authors in the fields of innovation in structural system and disaster prevention in engineering structures, architectural innovation, sustainable development of buildings and the environment and innovations in, and applications of, building materials. Hot topics and state-of-the-art view related to sustainable development in civil engineering are presented.
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.
