Description: The requirements of high precision and of high-quality components and devices in meeting the needs of modern industry and society in disciplines such as semiconductors, optics, nanotechnology, MEMS, manufacturing, biomedical and environmental engineering, make measurement technology and intelligent instruments (which sense, measure and report), more important than ever, and essential for the rapid development of information technology. Following the lead of the previous five publications (1989, 1993, 1996, 1998, 2001) in the series, “Measurement Technology and Intelligent Instruments”, this book presents the most recent advances in this important field. In all, 123 papers were contributed from many regions of the world; including China, Taiwan (China), Japan, Russia, Hong Kong (China), Germany, Australia, Austria, Canada, Korea, Poland, Slovakia and the UK and US.

The study of damage evolution, location and characterisation is an important aspect of the growing area of SHM and is a major theme of the conference. The link between SHM and machine condition-monitoring is emphasised by the substantial contribution, to the proceedings, which concerns the application of damage assessment techniques to rotating machines. In order to analyse efficiently the data–rich information, provided by monitoring and NDE techniques, it is necessary to use advanced signal processing procedures. A significant proportion of the conference is therefore dedicated to signal processing and computational methods.

Significant progress has been made over the past 30 years in handling silicon-based ceramics such as silicon nitride, silicon carbide, SiAlON, silicides and composites. A better understanding of processing parameters in various forming techniques, and of microstructure-property relationships, has led to substantial improvements in thermomechanical performance and reliability; as well as in cost reduction.
