The International Conference on Mechanical Design and Production has been established since 1979 by the Department of Mechanical Design and Production at Cairo University.
The conference MDP-6 held in Cairo, 2-4 January 1996, represents the 6th in the series. Its aim was to highlight the current advances in mechanical design and production, and to disseminate the latest developments from academic and industrial institutions in all related scientific disciplines.
This publication includes a selection of papers submitted to the conference and reviewed by members of the scientific committee. The main areas of the papers include: materials processing and characterization constitutive modeling; simulation and analysis of manufacturing processes; numerical analysis of structures; fracture analysis; design and tribology; dynamics, control and robotics; and new trends in industrial and manufacturing engineering.
For academics and practitioners working in the field of mechanical design and production.

This book represents the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Mechanical Design and Production held in Cairo, Egypt, 2-4 January 1996. The volume comprises 46 papers from 28 countries throughout the world, including 14 keynote presentations. The paper coverage is extremely wide - ranging from 'Pre-Christian technology in Alexandria' to 'Virtual reality' and from 'Rapid prototyping' to 'Guidance algorithms for homing missiles'. The structure of the text is as follows: Section 1 Materials processing and characterisation - eight papers. Section 2 Constitutive modelling - four papers. Section 3 Simulation and analysis of manufacturing processes - five papers. Section 4 Numerical analysis of structures - four papers. Section 5 Fracture analysis - four papers. Section 6 Design tribology - seven papers. Section 7 Dynamics, control and robotics - eight papers. Section 8 New trends in industrial and manufacturing engineering - five papers. To keep costs to a minimum, the document has been produced from author-generated 'camera-ready copy'. However, the printing and illustration are generally of a high quality. The nature of the content makes it a worthy addition to any institutional library.
