The aim of this collection of peer-reviewed papers is to promote the open discussion of SiC hetero-epitaxy as related to the possibility of growing SiC on other materials and of growing various SiC polytypes so as to take advantage of the possibilities of band-gap engineering, These proceedings present the latest developments in Silicon Carbide, and the prospects for Gallium Nitride (GaN on Si, SiC, sapphire and free-standing) and Diamond power electronics. Finally, the progress made in Graphene technology, such as its introduction into devices and its relationship to SiC epitaxial material, is considered.

Description: The 108 peer-reviewed papers of this volume reflect the latest developments in the field of materials and manufacturing technology; ranging from fundamentals to new technologies and applications. In particular, the papers cover the processing of advanced materials and the characterization of performance in critical applications. This book provides a valuable reference source for researchers in the fields of materials and metallurgical engineering, or manufacturing science and technology, who wish to further their understanding of the processing of materials and the microstructure-mechanical property correlations underlying mechanisms, and to create innovative and practical techniques and processes. It should also be of particular interest to manufacturing engineers.

These are the proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Processing and Manufacturing of Advanced Materials - THERMEC’2011 - which was held during the 1-5 August 2011 in Quebec City, Canada. The conference brought together 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 contents are thus and excellent and up-to-date guide to these subjects.

Description: Physical and numerical simulations make it possible for materials science to go from experience-based to science-based, and from qualitative to quantitative understanding. Physical simulations, which effectively reveal the underlying principles of a material’s structure and property evolution, save significant amounts of time and money. Numerical simulations meanwhile permit descriptions and forms of material processes which are impossible to achieve experimentally. Both types of simulation are naturally gaining acceptance worldwide, and will become a prominent approach used in materials research in the 21st century. Young researchers will therefore benefit greatly from studying this volume.

Description: The development of specific textures in materials occurs either naturally or by synthesis and processing using various methods. The presence of textures in materials manifests itself in the form of anisotropic properties; the understanding of which is indispensable to precise engineering design. In addition to conventional applications in structural materials, texture control has come to be practised in the form of functional materials. This collection is an edited version of papers presented at the sixteenth international conference on the textures of materials (ICOTOM 16), held at the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, India on December 12-17th, 2011.
The proceedings are broadly divided into six sections; the first being a collection of keynote lectures, followed by papers classified under Deformation, Deformation and Annealing, Techniques, Annealing and Materials.

This special issue on rapid casting solutions comprises original research papers, review papers, technical papers and notes. It is devoted to the development of important topics in rapid casting technology, and has been published as a special issue in order to highlight selected papers submitted to important international conferences and symposia, plus invited papers from prominent researchers. Rapid prototyping has been around for some twenty years, and is widely used in diverse areas: from the building of aesthetic and functional prototypes to the production of tools and moulds for technological prototypes. Among the various rapid prototyping techniques, three-dimensional printing, polyjet printing, silicon moulding, etc., are used commercially as hybrid rapid casting solutions. This issue provides an overview of the rapid prototyping process for ceramic shells that can be constructed and then joined (as in the conventional process) to give a cavity for the pouring of metal to produce cost-effective prototypes for casting applications. This volume will be welcomed by academics, researchers, industrialists and university students specialising in rapid casting or rapid prototyping, production engineers and others.
