Collection of selected, peer reviewed papers from various areas of wood processing - chemical processing of wood and plant biomass, processes for the production of broadcast materials, hydrothermal processes and environmental issues, shows a varied range of possibilities in the exploitation and processing of wood and their interdependence. The publication should serve as inspiration for science, research, education and practice for finding the comprehensive approach to tackle the issue. The unilateral approach often tempts to distort the perception of such complex issues as efficient exploitation of wood. Multilateral understanding of the issues can contribute to the discovery and implementation of modern original practices in the processing of wood.

The proceedings of the 12th National Scientific Conference “Ti-2015” contains 35 peer-reviewed articles from 16 Polish scientific centres which cover a wide range of basic and applied aspects of the research, modelling, processing and application of titanium and its alloys. The conference “Titanium and its alloys” is biannual national conference that has been held in Poland since 1990. It is an occasion to bring together scientists and practitioners, exchange their knowledge and experiences. The aim of the proceedings is to develop and promote the use of titanium in technology and medicine. The presented contributions cover these main topics:

- Forming the structure and microstructure of titanium materials as well as their physical, chemical and mechanical properties

- Surface engineering, advanced technologies of surface and thermo-plastic treatment

New technologies of titanium production and processing as well as their applications in chemical, aerospace, construction, marine industries and medicine.

Description: This special topic volume is a compilation of works contributed by experts from the international scientific community in the field of Wear and Contact Mechanics. The papers presented in this volume cover different aspects of the current areas of research in Wear and Contact Mechanics using new innovative theoretical, experimental and computational approaches. Numerical formulations are based on the finite element method (FEM) or the boundary element method (BEM) and their variants, i.e., Isogeometric analysis, p-version of finite elements and symmetric Galerkin boundary elements. A number of topics are addressed, such as computational wear and contact modeling with Isogeometric dual mortar methods, treatment of nonmatching interfaces, node-to-surface contact formulations for high-order elements and 3D problems, elastic-plastic contact between hard metal particles, friction in lubricated line contacts, running-in wear and fretting wear computing, frictional contact problems between viscoelastic-solids, frictional indentation of functionally graded materials (FGM), electro-elastic contact modeling, estimation of contact parameters in finite element analysis and high technological applications, as auxetic microstructures modeling and duct-concrete contact interface in high curvature post-tensioned tanks.
