Description: This special topic volume deals with the development of novel solid state electrocatalysts of a high performance to enhance the rates of the hydrogen or oxygen evolution. It contains a description of various types of metals, alloys and composites which have been obtained using electrodeposition in aqueous solutions that has been identified to be a technologically feasible and economically superior technique for the production of the porous electrodes. The goal was to produce papers that would be useful to both the novice and the expert in hydrogen technologies. This volume is intended to be useful to the materials scientist or electrochemist, student or profesional, who is planning studies of solid state electrocatalysts and who may have had little previous experience with electrochemical measurements. Such a reader will find an outline of basic theory and a discussion of experimental techniques and data analysis, with examples and appropriate references. It is hoped that the more advanced reader will also find this volume valuable as a review and summary of the literature up to the time of writing, with a discussion of current theoretical and experimental issues of research activity in the field of hydrogen energy.

Description: This volume contains a collection of papers from International Conference „Wear Processes 2012” which were held in Świnoujście, Poland, from 12 to 14 of September 2012. The Conference is organized periodically and is a continuation of the seminars series concerning “Testing and modelling of complex wear processes”, that are organized since 2003. The Initiator of the Conference is Jarosław Chmiel, PhD. Eng. from Maritime University of Szczecin.The aim of the Conference is a creating a forum of information exchange for researchers dealing with issues of wear phenomena caused by more as one process acting on a material simultaneously, the subject somewhat neglected at most conferences focusing on wear problems.The main topics of the Conference are as follows:- fundamental problems of deterioration and wear of materials.- simple and complex deterioration processes.- hydrogen degradation of materials.- wear processes accelerated by the hydrogen degradation and corrosion.- modeling of wear processes.- causes of abnormally rapid of wear. Since 2010, the Conference is held under the auspices of the European Structural Integrity Society, Technical Committee TC10 “Environmentally Assisted Cracking”.
