The structural and chemical characterization of different materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics, steels, composites, polymeric compounds, welding, superalloys, intermetallic compounds, and nanomaterials are included. They were prepared with different techniques. Some important topics addressed were the analytical techniques focused on the microstructural, chemical, optical, electronic, magnetic and mechanical properties of materials.
This book is the results of the contribution of a number of experts from the international scientific community in the respective field of research. It thoroughly covers some of the latest applications of inorganic nano materials in medical science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are steering mankind into new realms of efficient and miniature tools and appliance. Currently, this field of research is a major focus area of scientific interest, due to its huge potential in all areas of science and engineering. So, it has enormous potential also in the modern medical research, disease diagnosis and therapy. In relation with the title of this book, inorganic or inorganic based hybrids or composite nano materials, which have some innovative applications in the treatment of disease such as cancer, cardiovascular etc. and drug or gene delivery, imaging diagnosis, sensors etc. has been targeted and included in this book.
Recrystallization and grain growth are mechanisms that alter the microstructure without necessarily altering the phase. They are typically driven by high internal elastic and surface energies though sometimes other volumetric energy terms appear. The topic is important to materials engineers and scientists and geologists alike. The former typically aim to exert control over the phenomena for technological and economic benefit while the latter often seek in these mechanisms the answers to questions regarding events long gone. This collection of peer-reviewed papers brings together the most up-to-date knowledge in this field.
This volume summarizes the most important results of the ongoing research in the Center of Excellence on Applied Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Miskolc, Hungary. The primary goal of the research activities is the extension of the knowledge available for materials exhibiting special properties.
Manufacturing processes have been in evidence for the past hundred years and are being widely used in diverse areas. Among various manufacturing processes, casting, welding, forging, non- traditional manufacturing processes etc. are commercially used as manufacturing solutions. The special issue on “Recent advancement in manufacturing processes” includes original research papers, review papers, technical papers and notes. The volume is devoted to the development of important topics in manufacturing processes and compiles selected papers from prominent researchers. It provides an overview of emerging technologies like: Advanced manufacturing processes, including mechanical, chemical and thermal processes, rapid manufacturing/ casting/tooling, advanced casting, forming and moulding processes at all scales and manufacturing process monitoring, control and automation.
