It is noticeable that superalloys have regained their momentum. The worldwide effort to increase the efficiency and extend the lifetime of energy conversion facilities depends upon improved materials and manufacturing techniques. Materials are now expected to exhibit outstanding mechanical strength and creep resistance at high temperatures, as well as a good corrosion and oxidation resistance. Superalloys have this potential, but many of the commercial grades are still based upon metallurgical concepts that date back to the 1980s, and have typically been exploited so far in only a few prominent areas of application. Improvement in their high-temperature capability, and the adaption of manufacturing processes to new fields of application, present major challenges to current researchers in industry and academia. These papers, published within the context of the first European Symposium on Superalloys, present the current state of progress in the development, production and properties of cast, wrought and powder-metallurgical superalloys and associated coating systems. They represent a timely and invaluable guide to the subject.

The development of new engineering materials and technologies continues at a rapid pace. However, the application and dissemination of many of these materials and technologies is especially limited with regard to their incorporation into integrated design in urban eco-technologies, their market perspectives and their timely contribution to the existing and future requirements of mankind. The topics covered in this volume include: nanomaterials, materials for energy, metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, biomaterials, thin films and materials processing. The work is sure to have a stimulating effect in the development of new ideas.

Description: This special collection covers: 1. the technology of semiconductor-on-insulator structures and devices; 2. the physics of new SOI devices; 3. SOI sensors and MEMS; 4. nanodots, nanowires and nanofilms. The first part covers a wide variety of SemOI-based structures such as ZnO-on-Insulators, a-SiC-on-Si oxide, graphite inner films fabricated by ion implantation, and others. The second part presents new devices based upon impact ionization near to the source junction, the modeling of charge transport in nano-scale SOI MOSFETs, the electrical properties of SOI MOSFETs with LaLuO3 high-k gate dielectric and the study of neutron effects upon the behavior of nanometer-scale SOI devices. The third part considers various types of SOI sensors and MEMS, together with their characteristics and applications. The fourth part describes the fabrication and properties of quantum-dimensional structures such as nanowires and nanodots. This book will therefore be useful to a wide readership.

The objective of Coupled Problems is to present and discuss the state-of-the-art mathematical models, numerical methods and computational techniques used for solving coupled problems of a multidisciplinary nature in science and engineering. The goal of the conference was to take a step forward, in the formulation and solution of real-life problems, with a multidisciplinary vision; accounting for all of the complex couplings involved in the physical description of the problem. Simulation of multifaceted physics problems is a common task in applied research and industry. Often a suitable solver is built by connecting together several single-aspect solvers into a network. In this special issue, research in various fields was selected for consideration: adaptive methodology for multi-physics solvers, multi-physics phenomena and coupled-field problems leading to computationally intensive structural analysis. The strategies which are used to keep these problems computationally affordable are of special interest, and make this an essential reference-work.
