From the Editor

The engineering of materials with advanced features is driving the research towards the design of innovative materials with high performances. New materials often deliver the best solution for structural applications, precisely contribution towards the finest combination of mechanical properties and low weight. Nevertheless, the mimicking nature principles, leading to a new class of structural materials including biomimetic composites, natural hierarchical materials and smart materials. Meanwhile, computational modeling approaches are the valuable tools complementary to experimental techniques and provide significant information at the microscopic level and explain the properties of materials and their existence itself.  The modelling further provides useful insight to propose possible strategies to design and fabricate materials with novel and improved properties. Depending upon the pragmatic choice for the computational approaches varies from prediction of the structure and element based approaches to fabricate materials with properties of interests. The book brings together the engineering materials and modelling approaches generally used in the structural materials science.

This book covers the research topics on materials engineering, characterization, applications and their computational modeling. In general, computational modeling approaches are routinely used as cost effective and complementary tools to get information of the materials at the microscopic level and to explain their electronic and magnetic properties and the way they respond to external parameters like temperature and pressure.  In addition, modeling provides useful insight to construct design principles and strategies to fabricate materials with novel and improved properties. The use of modeling together with experimental validation opens up the possibility for designing extremely useful materials that are relevant for various industries and health-care sectors. This book has been designed such a way to cover both these aspects of using experimental and computational approaches for materials engineering and fabrication.  Chapters 1-6 are devoted to experimental characterization of materials and some of their applications relevant to paper industries and healthcare sectors.  The chapters 7-13 are devopted to computational materials modeling and their fabrication using atomistic and finite element based approaches.  In particular, the chapters 7 and 8 discuss about first principles based modeling approaches to predict the structure and electronic properties of extended systems. The remaining chapters contribute with theoretical approaches to understand hybrid materials and stochastic electromagnets and to model complex process like tunneling of superluminal photons. The book is written for readers from diverse backgrounds across chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, medical science, pharmacy, environmental technology, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering. It offers a comprehensive view of cutting-edge research on materials engineering and modeling. We acknowledge the contributors and publisher for their timely response in order to publish this book as per schedule.
