Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering: Research and Development

Elsevier
Free sample

This book, the first in the Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering Series, is a collection of high quality articles (full research articles, review articles and cases studies) with a special emphasis on research and development in mechatronics and manufacturing engineering. Mechatronics is the blending of mechanical, electronic, and computer engineering into an integrated design. Today, mechatronics has a significant and increasing impact on engineering with emphasis on the design, development and operation of manufacturing engineering systems. The main objective of this interdisciplinary engineering field is the study of automata from an engineering perspective, thinking on the design of products and manufacturing processes and systems. Mechatronics and manufacturing systems are well established and executed within a great number of industries including aircraft, automotive and aerospace industries; machine tools, moulds and dies product manufacturing, computers, electronics, semiconductor and communications, and biomedical.
  • A collection of high quality articles with a special emphasis on research and development in mechatronics and manufacturing engineering
  • Presents a range of views based on international expertise
  • Written by a highly knowledgeable and well-respected expert in the field

Mechatronics represents a unifying interdisciplinary and intelligent engineering science paradigm that features an interdisciplinary knowledge area and interactions in terms of the ways of work and thinking, practical experiences, and theoretical knowledge. Mechatronics successfully fuses (but is not limited to) mechanics, electrical, electronics, informatics and intelligent systems, intelligent control systems and advanced modeling, intelligent and autonomous robotic systems, optics, smart materials, actuators and biomedical and biomechanics, energy and sustainable development, systems engineering, artificial intelligence, intelligent computer control, computational intelligence, precision engineering and virtual modeling into a unified framework that enhances the design of products and manufacturing processes.
Interdisciplinary Mechatronics concerns mastering a multitude of disciplines, technologies, and their interaction, whereas the science of mechatronics concerns the invention and development of new theories, models, concepts and tools in response to new needs evolving from interacting scientific disciplines. The book includes two sections, the first section includes chapters introducing research advances in mechatronics engineering, and the second section includes chapters that reflects the teaching approaches (theoretical, projects, and laboratories) and curriculum development for under- and postgraduate studies. Mechatronics engineering education focuses on producing engineers who can work in a high-technology environment, emphasize real-world hands-on experience, and engage in challenging problems and complex tasks with initiative, innovation and enthusiasm.

Composite materials are defined as "engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties which remain separate and distinct on a macroscopic level within the finished structure". Recently, the utilization of composites has increased in various areas of science and engineering due to their special mechanical and physical properties. Therefore, composites have the potential to replace conventional materials in various fields of application such as automotive, biomedical, aeronautical and aerospace as well as in others advanced industries. Recently, advanced composites, for example, nanocomposites and biocomposites had been gaining ground for the development of new products in several industries.

The goal of Advanced Composites is the combined presentation of materials, manufacturing technology and engineering aspects of composites. This Series covers the complete range of multi scale composite materials, including nanocomposites, biocomposites, functional and smart composites, structural composites, gradient and layered composites, eco-composites, composites based in natural materials, etc. Current topics of interest include the physical and chemical properties, microstructural characterization of composites, design and manufacture of composites and structures, mechanical behaviour in use environments, testing and characterisation techniques, modelling and optimization methods, fracture, creep, tribology, machinability and performance of composites in service.

Advanced Compositesis essential reference for academics, materials, physics, chemical researchers, mechanical and materials, biomedical engineers, professionals in composite-related industries.
