This set of complaints relies at the overseas convention on Advances in development know-how in Hong Kong on 4-6 December 2002. the 2 volumes of lawsuits comprise nine invited keynote papers, seventy two papers brought via eleven groups , and 133 contributed papers from over 20 nations world wide. The papers hide a large spectrum of themes around the 3 expertise sub-themes of constructions and development, setting, and knowledge know-how. the diversity inside of those different types spans a width of subject matters, and those complaints offer readers with an exceptional basic evaluation of contemporary advances in construction examine.

The solid mechanics and materials engineering (M&M) communities will be well served if some specific linkages or •alignments are made toward these technologies. Some thoughtful examples for the M&M communities are: • • • • Bio-mechanics/materials Thin-film mechanics/materials Wave Propagation/NDT Nano-mechanics/materials • • • • Simulations/modeling Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) Smart materials/structures Designer materials Considerable NSF resources and funding will be available to support basic research related to these technologies.

Physical scales in materials and structural systems (Boresi & Chong, 2000) Many current NIST projects are focused on multidisciplinary and multi-scale problems, including in the areas of materials and mechanics. One successful program in the NIST Building and Fire Research Laboratory is the Service Life Prediction or SLP program, which includes partnerships with industry and other U. S. Federal Agencies. The mission of the SLP program is to greatly reduce the time-to-market for new products through the development and implementation of advanced methods and metrologies for quantitative and reliable prediction of the service life of 15 existing and new products.

NIST's mission is to develop and promote measurements, standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate trade, and improve the quality of life. NIST carries out its mission in four cooperative programs, the NIST Laboratories, the Baldrige National Quality Program, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and the Advanced Technology Program (ATP). The Baldrige National Quality Program promotes performance excellence among U. S.
