Description: This book presents the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Fracture and Damage Mechanics (FDM), of the 2-4 September 2003, at the Liborianum in Paderborn, Germany. 
The proceedings cover a wide range of topics in fracture and damage mechanics and bring together researchers and engineers from academia and industry from Europe, Asia and Central and North America.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The papers are divided into four broad categories: Experimental Techniques and Measurements, Computational Methods, Stress and Failure Analysis and Processes and Mechanisms. Some emphasis is placed on three-dimensional and mixed-mode problems; such as 3D fracture criteria for the prediction of fatigue crack growth in solids under arbitrary loading conditions.

Description: Stone-dressing continues to expand steadily, in nearly all of those countries having an abundant supply of suitable raw material, due to the increasing demand for stone products. Because competition from emerging stone-processing countries has been putting traditional stone-supplying countries under economic pressure, various attempts are being made to improve the financial viability of stone- processing operations and thereby maintain natural stone's position as a cost-effective building material. Numerous papers related to the machining of natural stone have been published in diverse journals and conference proceedings, but an overall treatment of the subject for the general reader is difficult to find. The purpose of this book is to provide an opportunity for academic researchers and industrial experts to summarize the achievements made, and to predict new trends in this area; all in a single volume.

Composite materials have come to play essential roles in various areas of industry and technology during the past few decades due to their excellent performance. In order to exchange innovative ideas and technical information in this area, Chinese scientists on both sides of the Taiwan Strait have already met twice since 2000. The 3rd cross-strait conference on composite materials was held on May 7-12, 2003, in Wuhan, China; sponsored by the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).

Description: This volume presents the proceedings of the fifth in the celebrated series of biennial international conferences on the Damage Assessment of Structures (DAMAS 2003).
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Studies of damage evolution, location and characterization are primordial aspects of the rapidly expanding field of SHM (structural health monitoring) and are major themes in this volume. In order to analyze efficiently the data-rich information provided by monitoring and by NDE (non-destructive evaluation) techniques, it is necessary to use advanced signal-processing procedures. Therefore, a significant fraction of the present book is dedicated to the optimization of signal processing and computation methods.

Since their inception Bioceramics meetings have provided a treasure house of information for both scientists and clinicians in the medical field. The clinical applications are numerous, in particular in the areas of orthopaedics, maxillofacial, plastic and ocular surgery, percutaneous devices, tissue engineering and sensors. This volume in addition to research papers contributed also presents selected overviews and discussions on recent bioceramics research and trends.

Description: The history of abrasive technology dates from the very dawn of mineral utilization and continues to this day with the development of precision-finishing technology.The current requirements of high precision and high quality surfaces for critical components and devices, such as silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry, lenses in the precision optics industry, and dies in the injection molding industry, make the technology of abrasives more important than ever, and essential, albeit indirectly, for the rapid development of information technology. This book therefore plays a valuable role in presenting recent advances in the field of abrasive technology.
