This special volume is dedicated to the science and technology of the semi-solid processing of metals. Since the recognition of the possibility of manipulating metals in the semi-solid state, during the seventies, this fascinating technology has experienced dynamic development  and has led to a whole family of new production processes, new equipment and industrial applications. In order to exploit fully the technical and economic potential of these new ideas, it is important to achieve a better understanding of the microstructural development and flow behavior in order to improve material and process modelling as well as process control.

No present-day research and development program is complete without the inclusion of a robust modeling and numerical simulation component. Models and model-based numerical simulations are extensively used to probe complex materials behavior and structure in order to obtain a deeper insight into the fundamentals of materials. Multi-physics models are becoming increasingly common, with advances in computational science, and are rapidly advancing the basic understanding of materials.

Description: This special-topic book, devoted to “Solid Phase Transformations” , covers a broad range of phenomena which are of importance in a number of technological processes. Most commercial alloys undergo thermal treatment after casting, with the aim of imparting desired compositions and/or optimal morphologies to the component phases.

This very special volume on ‘Advanced Structural and Functional Materials for Protection’ focuses on the choice of materials intended for the specific task of protecting civilians and soldiers against the effects of blast, fragmentation weapons and unconventional attacks, and also covers multi-functional materials intended for the enhancement of soldier performance. Protective materials represent one of the greatest challenges to synthesis and processing; due to the extreme requirements of the application.

The recent utilization of nano-sized powders and porous materials has led to the expectation that it will lead to basic breakthrough solutions for prospective nanomaterial products offering high performance and multi-functionalism. For this reason, many industrial countries have financially supported nanostructured materials development and their use in technical innovation.
