Description: The 14th S2P International Conference (October 23 – 27, 2016, Salt Lake City, USA) was dedicated to the science and processing technologies of the semi-solid metal alloys and composites. Since the discovery of the specific flow behavior of metals in semi-solid state during the early seventies, this fascinating technology has experienced a dynamic and turbulent development history which has led to a whole family of new production processes, new equipments and industrial applications for goals of full use of the technical and economic potential of the flow behaviour, improved materials and process modelling as well as control of processes. All S2P International Conferences have contributed to achieve this goal by providing a forum for scientists to share the common knowledge and to develop a common sense on fundamental topics and industrial requirements.

This volume is focused on the materials and devices for solar-to-chemical energy conversion. The introductory paper, by Alim and Bak, considers the basic concepts of the light-induced water oxidation by oxide semiconductors. This paper is concentrated on the photoreactivity of metal oxides, such as TiO2, with water and the related charge transfer during partial and total oxidation. The second paper of Yang et al provides an overview on the performance of TiO2 as photoanode in photoelectrochemical water oxidation. The paper of Nasir et al considers application of BiVO4 as photoelectrode for the generation of solar hydrogen fuel using water as the raw material. The work of Pastuovic et al is a treatise on the application of accelerator-based nuclear techniques in the characterisation of oxide semiconductors for solar energy conversion. This volume is addressed to those interested in the progress of research in oxide materials for solar energy conversion.

A specific feature of transport, especially maritime transport, is a presence of complex interactions between various components of the system. The presence of the phenomena affects the possibility of varying degrees of complexity and wear processes and destruction materials. Moreover, forecasting and reducing methods of wear intensity are specified in the transport engineering, as well. The issues above will be addressed in this manuscript. Presented in the manuscript results include not only laboratory, modelling and simulation studies, but also long-term studies of real objects. Studies of real objects were made thanks to cooperation with shipowners and stevedoring companies in sea ports. Moreover results basis on the practical experience of authors working on ships.
