Description: The aim of this special collection of peer-reviewed papers is to present recent progress in crystal growth, in the characterization and control of material properties, as well as in other basic research issues concerning silicon carbide (SiC) and other wide-bandgap semiconductors such as group-III nitrides and diamond. The latest research results relevant to wafer production processes, device fabrication technologies and device applications are discussed. These included the latest results in the development and commercialization of advanced devices and circuits used for energy saving, high-voltage switching, high-frequency high-power amplification and high-temperature operation. Work on the growth, characterization and device exploitation of epitaxial graphene was also covered. Evolving industrial products and capabilities were also highlighted.

Recrystallization and grain growth are fundamental aspects of microstructure evolution during the annealing and thermomechanical processing of engineering materials. These static and dynamic phenomena are of major scientific interest and of great importance in a wide range of industrial processes and applications. This collection of peer-reviewed papers brings together the most up-to-date knowledge in this field.

Description: The contents of this book pay particular attention to the different length-scales (macro, micro and nano) as related to obtaining a deeper understanding of the structure-property relationships of polymeric nanocomposite materials. They cover major findings and observations related to the morphological, interfacial, processing response, physical and thermophysical properties of multiphase polymers and polymer composite systems: from macro to nano length-scales. The presentation is organised around three areas: Multiscale modelling and simulation - Design and advanced characterisation - Processing, application and recycling.

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.
