Advanced Materials Research
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.

These proceedings contain the fully refereed papers which were presented at the 2nd International Conference on Materials and Manufacturing Technology (ICMMT 2011) held during July 8-10, 2011 in Xiamen, China. The main goal of the event was to provide an international scientific forum for the exchange of new ideas in a number of fields, and to facilitate in-depth discussions with peers all over the world. Core areas of materials and manufacturing technology, as well as multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and future applications are covered; thus providing a timely guide to the entire field.
The mechanical properties of a material are those that involve reaction to an applied load. The mechanical properties of metals determine their range of usefulness and govern their expected service life. Mechanical properties are also used to help to classify and identify materials. The most common properties which are considered are strength, ductility, hardness, impact resistance and fracture toughness. This special collection of peer-reviewed papers discusses the most interesting and up-to-date topics related to the subject and will provide a wealth of ideas for those working in the field.
