Cost-Affordable Titanium
F.H. (Sam) Froes, M. Ashraf Imam, and Derek Fray, editors

Titanium and titanium alloys are used in many demanding applications in aerospace and terrestrial systems because of their excellent combination of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. However, high costs resulting from an energy-intensive extraction process and complex fabrication sequence excludes titanium alloys from many applications. This proceedings volume will address all aspects of potential cost reduction of titanium alloys, covering such segments of titanium technology as extraction, creative melting including cold-hearth approaches, near-net-shape techniques, processing and fabrication advances, high-speed machining and knowledge-based processing with emphasis on computer-aided approaches, improved process control, and creative designs. This volume will be of widespread interest to materials scientists and engineers working in the aerospace, automobile, chemical processing, medical, and consumer industries.

Multiphase Phenomena and CFD Modeling and Simulation in Materials Processes
L. Nastac and B. Li, editors

This volume contains proceedings dealing with the topics of multiphase phenomena in materials processing and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling and simulation of engineering processes. This collection gathers papers from researchers and engineers involved in the modeling of multiscale and multiphase phenomena in material processing systems. Papers address gas-particle flows, liquid-liquid phase flows, bubbly driven flows, granular flows, liquid-solid flows, multiphase flows in external fields, multiscale heat and mass transfer, and microstructure formation in these multiphase systems. Papers also focus on the CFD modeling and simulation of various engineering processes, such as metal processes including casting, forging, welding, heat treating, and VAR/ESR/PAM/EBM remelting processes; coatings including PVD, CVD, and plasma-assisted EBM-PVD technologies; and other surface engineering processes including induction, laser, and EB thermal processing. The CFD modeling and simulation proceedings discuss applications of CFD to engineering processes and demonstrate how CFD could help scientists and engineers to better understand the fundamentals of engineering processes.

Proceedings from the Global Innovations Symposium on Materials Processing and Manufacturing: Trends in LIGA, Miniaturization, and Nanoscale Materials, the fifth in a series sponsored by the MPMD, provide description, insight, challenges, and projections for advances in miniaturized part manufacturing, evaluation, and applications. This collection provides a visionary look to where investments in materials research are likely to occur and what areas in materials R&D are ripe for discoveries that will have major impact on quality of life.
