Advanced Materials Research
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.
This collection of peer-reviewed papers brings together the latest advances and applications in the fields of composites, micro-/nano-materials, steel and iron, ceramics, metal-alloy materials, polymer materials, optical/electronic/magnetic materials, materials physics and chemistry, structural materials and functional materials.
This book, comprising internationally peer-reviewed papers, covers the subject areas of natural fibers, chemical fibers, fiber manufacturing technology, principles of textile design, structure, properties and processing of textile materials, measurement technology and instrumentation, non-woven materials, structure, properties and processing of non-woven materials, coloration technology, finishing technology, pollution control and treatment of dyeing and finishing, materials and their applications, materials processing technologies and other related topics. The volume will be of interest to anyone working in these fields.
