International Conference on Digital Manufacturing & Automation (2010: ChanSha, China)

Computer Society Press


1925 pages




In anticipation of a gathering in December 2010 in ChanSha, China, two big volumes contain papers accepted for the international conference on the topic announced in the title; the acronym is ICDMA 2010. It's the first of a planned annual conference sponsored by several universities and research organizations in China. From some 1700 submissions (from 10 countries and regions), 600 papers passed successfully through the review process and are presented here. Broad themes include mechatronics, digital manufacturing, deep-sea mining, control technology and equipment automation, and intelligent control and detection technology. A sampling of topics: dynamic energy absorption of circular honeycomb under in-plane impact loading, the effect of thermal properties of building glass on cooling energy consumption of buildings, integrated manufacturing of free-form surfaces, and a network model approach for investigation of regenerator on characteristic impedance in thermoacoustic engine, to name just a few. Organization is alphabetical by title, and inexplicably there is no subject index. Each paper begins with an abstract and at least three or four keywords are identified, so assembling a keyword index would have been easy and useful. As it stands, readers will need to know the author of a paper that might interest them, or they'll need to scan the table of contents.
