This book presents the proceedings of the 9-th International Conference on Processing and Manufacturing of Advanced Materials – THERMEC’2016, which took place between May 29 and June 3, 2016 in Graz, Austria, under the co-sponsorship of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), USA. The Conference was also under the international auspices of professional organizations from Japan, Korea, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Austria, India, and Canada. The Conference was intended to bring together the researchers and engineers/technologists working in different aspects of processing, fabrication, structure/property evaluation and applications of both ferrous and nonferrous materials including biomaterials, and smart/intelligent materials as well as the advanced characterisation techniques. In addition to the contributed papers, the conference committee included in the final program the invited presentations by active researchers from various countries in several topic areas covered at THERMEC’2016.
