Advanced Materials, Mechanical and Structural Engineering Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference of Advanced Materials, Mechanical and Structural Engineering (AMMSE 2015), Je-ju Island, South Korea, September 18-20, 2015
In the last decades, advanced materials and mechanics has become a hot topic in engineering. Recent trends show that the application of nanotechnology and environmental science together with advanced materials and mechanics are playing an increasingly important role in engineering applications. For catching up with this current trend, this book provides both theoretical and practical applications in the engineering analysis of materials, and incorporates these along with the latest analytical techniques, instrumentation, and regulations. This book covers various topics such as advanced construction materials, smart materials in manufacturing, nanotechnology in mechanics and materials science, smart structures and systems, vibration and noise control, informational technology of materials, power conversion and intelligent control and fluid dynamics among others. Furthermore, the authors provide guidelines to researchers and engineers, enabling them to prepare and understand the materials and construction responses and analyses. The analytical methods presented in engineering applications and analysis for materials will be useful to anyone who produces, uses, or evaluates construction data, and will be a valuable tool in advanced engineering education and training programs.
