The collection shows the importance of neutron and synchrotron radiation in the evaluation of mechanical stresses. It gathers the current knowledge from those concerned with the mechanical stress evaluation of materials and components using neutron and synchrotron radiation. It also gives an interesting "snap-shot" of progress in the field. The wide array contributions focus on the following key topics: Stress evaluation using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays; Development of measurement methods and instrumentation; Material processing and residual stresses; The influence of residual stresses on the physical and mechanical properties of materials and components; Measurement and assessment of residual micro-stresses and intergranular stresses; Residual strains and stresses in complex materials (e.g. multi-phase and biomaterials); Industrial applications of residual stress analysis using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays; and Complementary techniques for residual stress measurements.

The development of photovoltaic technology is expected to solve problems related to energy shortages and environmental pollution caused by the use of fossil fuels. Dye-sensitizedsolar cells (DSSCs) are promising next-generation alternatives to conventional silicon-based photovoltaic devices owing to their low manufacturing cost and potentially high conversion efficiency. This special topic volume addresses recent advances in the research on dye-sensitized solar cells. The focus of this special topic volume is on materials development (sensitizers, nanostructured oxide films, and electrolyte), but commercialization. This work illustrates a new pathway to achieve highly efficient DSSCs for practical applications.

Description: This book presents the proceedings of the International Conference on Residual Stresses 9 and is devoted to the prediction/modelling, evaluation, control, and application of residual stresses in engineering materials. The state of the art is presented by the contributions of researchers from both academia and industry. New developments, on stress-measurement techniques, on modelling and prediction of residual stresses and on progress made in the fundamental understanding of the relation between the state of residual stress and the material properties, are highlighted. Focal points of interest are: simulation of stress profiles, depth-resolved stress analysis using synchrotron radiation and phase transformations in welded structures. This book offers an indispensable overview of the current understanding of the role of residual stresses in materials used in wide ranging application areas, such as, for example, microelectronic devices, sensors and actuators and machine parts, as in the automotive industry.

Even though composites are manufactured to near net shaped, machining has to be performed during the final production stage to get the finished products. Soft computing is a collection of methodologies that aim to exploit tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. This special volume intends to draw a picture of the recent advances made in the soft computing assisted machinability studies for composite materials and includes the submission of high quality research articles. Suitable topics include the application to the machining (turning, drilling, milling) of the composites like metal matrix composites, fiber reinforced composites, glass epoxy polymer composites, polyamides and PEEK using various soft computing techniques such as artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, particle swarm optimization and simulated annealing.
