Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The aim of the special collection was to bring together the expertise of scientist and engineers from universities and industry in the field of Structural Health Monitoring, Non‐Destructive Evaluation, and Condition Monitoring. The study of damage detection, localization and assessment are important in the rapidly growing field of SHM. Due to interdisciplinary character of SHM systems, the contributions come from experts from area of mechanics, materials engineering, electronics, software engineering, and signal processing as well as system users from civil engineering, aviation, power plants, wind turbines, chemical plants, petrochemical plants and railways sectors. A significant part is dedicated to utilization of advanced measurement techniques, signal processing, and computation methods.

Description: This book includes papers collected for the 25th Symposium and Annual Meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (BIOCERAMICS 25), held in Bucharest, Romania, from 7-10 November, 2013.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The papers were selected by reviewing the full papers of authors whose abstracts submitted to the Symposium were accepted after a blind peer-reviewing process, and reflected the most recent progress made in the study of bioceramics and their applications in medicine. The papers are focused not just on synthesis, processing and characterization of bioceramics, but also on surface modification, tissue engineering, nanomaterials and drug delivery. Which means that bioceramics are facing advanced towards the regeneration of the tissue by biomimetic design of structure and integration of biological function to optimize the tissue response. The strong contribution related to the application of bioceramics and composite materials in dentistry and orthopedics presented in this book confirm the importance of these materials for clinical practice in medical units.
