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.
This special volume brings together the latest advances in, and applications of, mechatronics and materials processing. It comprises 523 papers selected from the some 1000 papers originally submitted by universities and industrial concerns all over the world. The papers specifically cover the topics of manufacturing technology and processing, materials science and technology, mechatronics and automation. All of the papers were peer-reviewed, by selected experts, and chosen for their quality and relevance. This work will provide readers with a broad overview of the latest advances in the field of mechatronics and materials processing. It will also constitute a valuable reference work for researchers in the fields of mechatronics and materials processing.
Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Materials Science and Computing Science (MSCS 2011), held in Wuhan, China, on August 13th-14th, 2011. The objective of MSCS 2011 was to provide a forum within which researchers, educators, engineers, and government officials involved in the general areas of Materials Science and Computing Science could disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on future research directions in these fields.
These 19 peer-reviewed papers cover emerging topics in Advanced Materials (e.g.: polymer composites, nanocomposites, ceramics, thin-film coatings and shape-memory alloys) and thus offer an unique insight into current progress.
Abrasive technology is the most important aspect of precision technology. A total of 117 full-color papers are to be found in this book. Developments in precision turning, milling, and drilling, machining of difficult-to-cut materials, such as chromium-nickel alloys, titanium alloys, carbides and ceramics, and glass are addressed. In addition, special processes of precision technology, including polishing, lapping, jet-machining, magnetic finishing, micro and nano-machining, machine-tool design, silicon wafers and spinning, are presented. This work is a handy guide to the state of the art.
This volume is divided into 3 chapters. The first, focused on Materials and Elaboration Techniques, describes various types of material such as composites, polymers, semiconductors, metals, ceramics, bio-materials, inorganic alloys, textile, porous, crystalline, amorphous and hybrids elaborated by various means such as vapor-phase, liquid-phase, plasma, ion-based and laser-assisted techniques, soft chemistry, self- assembly, bonding, sintering, and including bulk, surface, interface, thin-film and nano-materials. The second chapter, on Characterization Techniques and Properties, covers both physical (optical, structural, electrical, mechanical, magnetic, damage, aging…) and chemical (surface and bulk composition, imaging, impurity, reactivity, catalysis, aging, oxidation, corrosion) aspects. The last chapter, Applications, focuses on subjects such as: (i) environment and energy (renewable energy, storage and energy conversion, transport), (ii) health, biomedical and life science, (iii) electronic devices and systems (micro-nano electronics, power electronics, photonics and optoelectronics, systems, storage and heat management) and (iv) cultural heritage (e.g. archeology).
The main themes and trends covered by this volume are Manufacturing Technology and Applications and Innovation Engineering Management. Both inward-looking research (core areas of Materials and Manufacturing Technology) and outward-looking research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and applications) are reviewed. The work will provide invaluable guidance to those interested in these subjects.
