X-ray powder diffraction is a long-established and invaluable technique which is widely applied to the characterization of crystalline materials. The method has traditionally been used for phase identification, quantitative analysis and for the determination of structural imperfections. In recent years however, its use has been extended into exciting new areas such as the extraction of three-dimensional microstructural properties.

The trend towards the integration of modeling, analysis and design tools, which began in the 1990s, is now well underway, and it is becoming increasingly evident that formerly disparate engineering functions, such as stress analysis, fracture mechanics, elasticity and vibration analysis, will continue to move closer together, as seamlessly integrated computational design tools evolve.  The series of Modern Practice in Stress and Vibration Analysis conferences has always reflected this alliance, with its tradition of encouraging specialist contributions to the development and enhanced application of powerful numerical methods; in conjunction with seminal papers on new techniques in experimental mechanics.

Ecomaterials, or "Green Materials", are those designed so as to minimize their environmental impact, while still maintaining or even increasing the desired operational performance. Ecomaterials research is an interdisciplinary field where scientists and engineers with backgrounds in both chemistry, and in materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, and carbon, are involved in raising the environmental consciousness of industry and in motivating ecological research. This volume contains the papers presented during the fourth international symposium on ecomaterials processing and design, which was held on February 4-6, 2003 in Kangnung, Korea.

Wide-bandgap semiconductors such as SiC, III-V nitrides and related compounds are attracting rapidly increasing attention due to their other, very interesting, physical properties which are often superior in many ways to those of conventional semiconductors. Steady improvements in crystal quality, and improved knowledge concerning their physical properties, are leading to rapid developments in high-power, high-temperature, high-frequency electronics and blue-light emitters.
