The existence of crack-like flaws cannot be precluded in any engineering structure. At the same time, the increasing demand for energy- and material-conservation dictates that structures be designed with smaller and smaller safety factors. Consequently, accurate quantitative estimates of the flaw-tolerance of structures are of direct concern to the prevention of fracture in load-bearing components of all kinds: ranging from space satellites and aircraft to bone prosthesis and home appliances.

The fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology are now growing very rapidly. The properties of nanostructures are different to those of the bulk material, due to the high surface area to volume ratio and possible appearance of quantum effects at the nanoscale. The study of size and shape effects upon material properties has therefore attracted enormous attention.

Description: Materials processing is an important and essential step in the production of useful products, and is one of the major wealth-generating activities. With the increasing demand for the production of high precision, high integrity and high density devices and systems in modern life, materials processing has become more important than ever before. Following on from the previous eight publications in the series, “Asia-Pacific Conference on Materials Processing”, this volume presents the latest developments in this field, and a new understanding of the underlying mechanisms.
