With energy costs increasing, the gains to be made from weight-saving are most significant in the aerospace domain, but such gains are clearly also advantageous for road transport and this is even beginning to be recognised in shipbuilding. Consequently, improved reliability and resistance to degradation and durability in severe environments are always important requirements. Thus the development of composites, nano-composites and refractory alloys having specific properties has become a key factor in industrial and technological progress. Another challenge is the recyclability of advanced materials, as reflected by the emergence of projects involving thermoplastic-matrix composite fuselages. Moreover, the incorporation of biopolymers extracted from diverse raw materials can be an interesting alternative route to attaining the objective of 100% biodegradability. The purpose of these topics is to bring together researchers and specialists from universities and industry who are working on new composites and nano-composites, titanium alloys, etc., as well as structural characterisation using destructive or non-destructive testing, numerical analysis and composite processes.

Description: This work contains the proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Sheet Metal, held in Leuven, Belgium, from the 18th to the 20th April, 2011.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The objective of the International Conferences on Sheet Metal is to provide a forum where researchers, academics and industrialists can discuss and promote both the early dissemination of research results, and technology-transfer in sheet-metal processing. The conference provides an opportunity for those working on experimental research, as well as those involved in analytical and numerical modeling, to present their work. The contents therefore provide an unequalled overview of the field.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Silicon ultra-large scale integrated circuits (ULSIs) are now faced with various physical limits to further scaling. Therefore, it is very important to establish the fundamental science and technology required to produce nano-scale complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor devices (Nano-CMOS) having high performance, new functionalities and larger-scale integration. The scope of this book covers: - Nano-scale complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor devices (Nano-CMOS), - Novel functional devices, materials, and nanoprocessing technologies, - Nano-bio physics and technologies for future nano devices, - Variability control technologies and Signal integrity. This makes it a very useful handbook on the subject.
