Three volumes contain roughly 400 papers arranged according to the following broad themes: advanced engineering materials; surface engineering and coatings; materials forming, machining and joining; laser processing; powder metallurgy and plastic deformation; friction and wear; waste-to-energy, waste management, and waste disposal; CAD/CAE/CAM; product design and development; and other related ropics
. A more specific sampling of topics: development of non-ironing fabric of cotton/fractal polyester twisted yarn; performance test specification for passenger car in low temperature; purification of metallurgical grade silicon by stag and acid leaching treatment; and a dynamic dispatching method of resource in cloud computing environment.
``If we can find out more about the genetics of headlice, we might be able to use that information to help people in the ropics
, where body lice can carry life threatening diseases such as relapsing fever.''
