The International Conference on Materials Science and Engineering – BraMat (Brasov Materials), organized every odd year in Brasov at Transilvania University, is the main Romanian scientific event in the field of Materials Science and Engineering. This book contains selected articles presented at the BraMat 2017 conference. The main topics of this collection are researching and testing properties of various structural materials, experience of their application in various areas of modern machinery, last results in the researches and development of materials processing technologies.
We hope this book will be useful for many researchers and engineers from various fields of material science.
This special collection focuses on measurement science and metrology: micro- and nano-measurements; novel measurement methods and diagnostic technologies, including non-destructive and dimensional inspection, optical and X-ray tomography and interferometry, terahertz technologies for science, industry and biomedicine, intelligent measuring instruments and systems for industry and transport, measurements of geometrical and mechanical quantities, measurements and metrology for humanitarian fields and education in measurement science. The aim was to present the current state and evolution of measuring technology and intelligent instruments, to highlight novel technologies for science, industry and engineering, and to spot promising ways towards further development, of new technologies for measurement, at the international level. The special collection was established following the results of the 12th International Symposium on Measurement Technology and Intelligent Instruments (ISMTII 2015, September 22 - 25, 2015, Taipei, Taiwan).
