Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).This work, with its 265 peer-reviewed papers, aims to address the hottest issues in materials and mechanics. It covers a wide range of topics in those areas; including materials science, mechanical engineering and materials, industrial applications of materials and mechanics, etc.: a useful and timely guide to the subject matter.The 260 papers selected for the August 2011 conference report recent research on metal, inorganic nonmetallic, organic polymer, composite, structural, and functional materials. The second volume in the two-volume set focuses on developments from mechanical engineering, industrial mechanics, and information systems for materials and mechanics. Three papers from the North University of China describe an ultra-low temperature pressure sensor and a tunable radio frequency inductor. Five papers from the Shaanxi University of Science and Technology investigate the effect of the chemical structure and sodium sulfate on polycarboxylate superplasticizers in cement pastes, a degraded chitosan for retanning leather, and a tetrabasic graft copolymer adhesive. Other topics include methods for assessing marine corrosion of steels, optimization of process parameters for tube hydroforming, x-ray detection of defects in railway freight cars, guideway joints for CNC machine tools, and impedance control of a wind turbine blade grinding robot.
