Jointly sponsored by the Chinese Society for Metal, the Japan Institute of Metals, the Korean Institute of Metals and Materials, and the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society, the international conference on advanced materials and processing was held in Beijing, China in November of 2004. This five-volume set contains 988 papers from the conference's 20 symposia that, in broad terms, cover structure materials, functional materials, materials processing, and materials characterization. Each of the volumes is dedicated to the papers from three to four of the symposia each. Volume one addresses advanced ferrous alloys and processing, light metals, and intermetallics and high temperature alloys. The next volume deals with composite materials, advanced ceramics, advanced nuclear materials, and layered and graded materials in combustion synthesis. The middle volume includes papers on electronic materials, smart materials and systems, magnetic materials, biomaterials, and hydrogen absorbing materials. Volume four includes treatments of advanced melt processing plus casting and joining, spray forming and rapid prototyping, superplasticity and superplastic forming, and modeling and simulation of materials and processes. The final volume contains papers on amorphous, quasicrystalline, and nanocrystalline materials; thin film materials and processing; grain boundary, interface, and surface engineering; and materials characterization and evaluation. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
