It comprises 170 peer-reviewed papers selected (for particular quality and relevance) from the over 300 originally submitted by universities and industrial concerns all over the world. The contents cover the topics of materials science and technology, building materials, nanoscience and nanotechnology, and micro/nano electro-mechanical systems. This book will thus provide readers with a broad overview of the latest advances in the field of materials science and nanotechnology and constitute a valuable reference work for researchers in the fields of materials science and nanotechnology.
The proceedings of the 24th annual meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (Bioceramics 24), held in Japan, comprise 133 peer-reviewed papers arranged into 13 chapters: I. Advanced Calcium Phosphate Ceramics; II. Porous Materials; III. Cements; IV. Coatings; V. in vivo Studies and Clinical Application; VI. Cell Studies and Cell-Material Interactions; VII. Composites; VIII. Drug Delivery Carriers; IX. Dental Materials; X. Metals; XI. Zirconia and Alumina Ceramics; XII. Nano-Materials; XIII. Sol-Gel Synthesis and Other Materials. They will be of great help in exploiting the merits of ceramics and in overcoming their weakness in applications involving polymers and metals.

A series of papers was devoted to the processes of metal-forming. Special attention was paid to the question of micro- and nano-structure adjustment during processes such as extrusion and microtube press-bending. Other papers covered models for damage accumulation and healing, as well as fracture prediction during metal forming.
The Baltic International Conferences on Materials Engineering and Tribology were initiated 19 years ago and focus on materials issues and tribological studies. During this period, BALTMATTRIB has become an open forum where researchers and engineers can exchange ideas, share thoughts and encourage development and cooperation in both basic and applied research in the fields of materials science, powder metallurgy, surface engineering and tribology.
This volume covers a wide range of topics: Fracture Mechanics, Failure Analysis, Composites, Multiscale Modeling, Micromechanics, Structural Health Monitoring, Damage Tolerance, Corrosion, Creep, Non-Linear Problems, Dynamic Fracture, Residual Stress, Environmental Effects, Crack Propagation, Metallic and Concrete Materials, Probabilistic Aspects, Computer Modeling Methods (Finite Element, Boundary Element and Meshless), Microstructural and Multiscale Aspects.
These 189 conference papers cover a wide variety of topical areas, including: high-precision machining, non-conventional machining, CAD/CAM technology, machine tools and control, MEMS/NEMS, precision/medical devices, mechatronics, mechanical design and tribology, metrology, green manufacturing, advanced molding and forming and other related technologies. This work will certainly stimulate further research and development in the field of precision engineering.

Innovation in Materials Science - 2 reinforces the adage of John Dismukes that, “Scientific Technology” has progressively displaced “Empirical Technology”, as the primary driver and basis for increasing economic development over the last four centuries. Technical inventions, and innovations based upon technical ideas, remain the basic drivers for wealth-creation. However, the areas of current materials research have changed considerably between 2008, when the first volume was published, and now (2012). The collection of articles in Volume 2 reflects this change. An index of the articles published in the earlier collection, Innovation in Materials Science (2008 doi:10.4028/www.scientific.net/KEM.380) is also provided in order to comprehend the considerable changes which have occurred in the landscape of materials research over the past four years.
