These are the proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Processing and Manufacturing of Advanced Materials – THERMEC’2009; held during the period, August 25-29, 2006, in Berlin , Germany under the co-sponsorship of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) ,USA.
This work reflects the current ensemble knowledge of world-wide researchers and engineers/technologists working on various aspects of the processing, fabrication, structure/property evaluation and applications of both ferrous and non-ferrous materials; including biomaterials and smart/intelligent materials.
The papers are divided into the chapters: Keynote, 1. Aluminium Alloys & Aerospace Structural Metallic Materials, 2. Biomaterials and Materials in Biomedical Applications, 3. Surface Engineering / Coatings, 4. Composites, 5. Dynamic Behaviour of Materials, 6. Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Storage Technologies, 7. Friction Stir-Welding / Processing, 8. Intermetallics, 9. Magnesium Alloys, 10. Metallic Glasses / Bulk Metallic Amorphous Materials, 11. Nanostructured Materials, Powder Metallurgy & Metallic Foams, 12. Severe Plastic Deformation, 13. Smart / Intelligent Materials / Processes, 14. Superalloys & Heat-Resistant Steels, 15. Residual Stresses & Tomographic Methods in Materials Science, 17. Texture, 18. Thin Films, 19. Steels & Thin Slab and Strip Casting, 20. Welding and Joining, 21. Mechanical Behaviour & Fracture.
This is essential reading-matter for those working in, or needing an introduction to, the fields covered.
