In this rapid growing market in advanced high strength steel and press hardening, in particularly demand from automotive industry and sustainability community to develop light-weight materials for Body in white or BIW, has motivated us to organize ICHSU2016, soon after the successful conclusion of our ICHSU2015 last year to encourage experts all over the world to get together again to exchange note and ideas as how to move the R&D in press hardening technology forward in the new era.
The purpose of holding ICHSU2016 is to satisfy the increasingly urgent requirement of reducing the weight of vehicle structures and increasing passenger safety. This conference arouses great interests and attentions from domestic and foreign researchers in hot stamping field, of the articles accepted, covering almost all the current topics of advanced high strength steel and press hardening technology, which includes materials & testing, modeling & simulation, process design, tribology & tools, equipment and product properties.
This unique book addresses all these three areas in an easily accessible single source. The book contains 15 chapters written by leading experts and is divided into four parts: General Topics; Adhesion in Pharmaceutical Field; Adhesion in Biomedical Field; and Adhesion in Dental Field. The topics covered include:
- Theories or mechanisms of adhesion.
- Wettability of powders.
- Role of surface free energy in tablet strength and powder flow behavior.
- Mucoadhesive polymers for drug delivery systems.
- Transdermal patches.
- Skin adhesion in long-wear cosmetics.
- Factors affecting microbial adhesion.
- Biofouling and ways to mitigate it.
- Adhesion of coatings on surgical tools and bio-implants.
- Adhesion in fabrication of microarrays in clinical diagnostics.
- Antibacterial polymers for dental adhesives and composites.
- Evolution of dental adhesives.
- Testing of dental adhesives joints.
The book integrates aspects of computational materials science, physical metallurgy, alloy design, process design, and structure-properties relationships, in a manner not done before. It fills a knowledge gap in the interrelationships of multiple microstructural and deformation mechanisms by applying the concepts and tools of designing microstructures for achieving combinations of engineering properties—such as strength, corrosion resistance, durability and damage tolerance in multi-component materials—used for critical structural applications.Discusses the science behind the properties and performance of advanced metallic materialsProvides for the efficient design of materials and processes to satisfy targeted performance in materials and structuresEnables the selection and development of new alloys for specific applications based upon evaluation of their microstructure as illustrated in this work
