Two large international conferences on Advances in Engineering Sciences were held in Hong Kong, March 13-15, 2013, under the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists (IMECS 2013), and in London, U.K., 3-5 July, 2013, under the World Congress on Engineering 2013 (WCE 2013) respectively. IMECS 2013 and WCE 2013 were organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG). IAENG is a non-profit international association for engineers and computer scientists, which was founded in 1968.

This volume contains 46 revised and extended research articles written by prominent researchers participating in the conferences. Topics covered include engineering mathematics, computer science, manufacturing engineering, industrial engineering, and industrial applications. The book offers the state of art of tremendous advances in engineering sciences and also serves as an excellent reference work for researchers and graduate students working with/on engineering sciences.
