Advances in Materials Manufacturing Science and Technology II
The present volume contains 293 selected and peer-reviewed papers, carefully chosen from among the more than 500 papers presented, by worldwide specialists from industry and academia, at the 12th International Manufacturing Conference in China; organized by the Northwestern Polytechnic University.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The broad range of topics of these papers shows that, with the continual transition of modern industry, the interests of the IMCC series have expanded, from just the machining aspects of Manufacturing Engineering, into Modern Management, Information Technology, and so on.
This publication should therefore be essential reading matter for anyone working in these fields.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Over 1100 pages hold some 293 papers chosen from the more than 500 papers presented at the conference held in China in 2006. A sampling of topics: microfluidics control method based on the EOF technology, the effect of coatings on mechanical properties of TC4 titanium alloy during laser shock processing, surface integrity of an ultra-high strength alloy in HSC process, rotary ultrasonic machining of advanced ceramics, and elastic-plastic contact analysis of materials with gradient yield strength, among other topics. The conference has expanded in scope from just the machining aspects of engineering, and this collection offers some material of interest to management and information technology personnel; for example, papers address research on a web based remote monitor and control system for grinding process; semantic integration of manufacturing data sources; and appplication of ant colony algorithm and grey relation theory in selecting cooperative manufacturing partners.
