Control Engineering in Materials Processing
Special Topic Volume With Invited Peer Reviewed Papers OnlyeBook - 2011
Attention is focused here on the materials group known as "smart" e.g. Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) and piezoelectrics. The Department of Process Control at the University of Science and Technology carries out leading research in the general area of control engineering. Within this field, scientists from the department also work on the implementation of control theory in materials processing; especially with regard to influencing material properties and optimizing manufacturing processes. Instead of exploiting the principles of control theory for materials use, some researchers use materials-related phenomena for control purposes. The present work offers an informative introduction to this interesting field.
