Solid State Phenomena
The concept of the 22nd Concrete Days (CD 2015) allowed a rich programme of expert lectures and posters but also enough time for professional discussions, informal business negotiations and friendly meetings.
The Czech Concrete Society CSSI as the organizing body of the conference has done its best to ensure a convenient stay for 22 times. There were more than 310 participants at the conference this time.
The selected papers include recent results of scientific and engineering decisions in area of researching of properties and manufacturing technologies of modern concretes; modelling and design of structure elements from concrete and realization of significant construction projects.
The first book of the Proceedings of ASCO-Nanomat 2015 includes articles of 41 contributed papers of the third school-conference, which were recommended for publication by Publishing Committee. The articles reflect the new results and scientific achievements in the field of growth and synthesis of new nanomaterials and coatings, technology of their growth and preparation, their physical properties, calculations and modeling of the electronic structure and properties of new nanomaterials. The Proceedings consist of two chapters. In the first one “Semiconducting and Metal Nanoheterostructures: Self-Organization and Characterization” the 14-th articles devoted to atomic processes and nanostructure formation and characterization and ab initio calculations and modeling were collected. In the second chapter named “Nonlinear Optical Mediums, Nanocomposites, Nanostructured Coatings, Functional Materials and their Applications” the 27 articles devoted to formation technology and characterization of different kinds of nanomaterials of organic and non-organic nature were presented. This proceedings volume is intended for scientists, readers, professors and post-graduate students.
The 34 papers are grouped as follows:
Chapter 1: Progressive Technologies in Production of Powdered and Particulate Materials;
Chapter 2: Recycling of Powdered and Solid Wastes;
