Processing, structure and properties of advanced metallic materials
Over the last decades, we have witnessed and benefited from the development of numerous new technological systems. The development of these technologies emphasizes the importance of materials as the primary building blocks for engineering developments. On the one hand, the properties of materials have dictated nearly every design and every useful application that the engineer could devise. On the other hand, with the present sophistication of science and engineering of materials, it is no longer simply a question of being satisfied to design with existing materials. We are now requiring new materials with new properties to fit our designs. This is true in all fields of engineering. This search for new materials with improved properties now occupies an important position in the engineering world.
A number of procedures have been recently proposed to aid the development of materials science and engineering. For example, the advents of the scanning tunneling microscope and the atomic force microscope, together with developments in electron microscopy, have opened new ways for the study of structure materials at the nano-scale. Advances in the field of fracture mechanics and its application to structural design and material selection have helped to offset some of the potential dangers posed by increasing technological complexity, and have undoubtedly prevented a substantial number of structural failures. The development of thermo-mechanical processing in steel industry changed the traditional concept of deformation processing, when the single operation to reduce thickness and to provide a desirable shape has been improved to product specific microstructures, with which are associated particular mechanical and physical properties. This Symposium deals with these topics, to show some of the new most important scientific and technological advances in materials science and engineering.
The objective of this Symposium is to discuss the relationships between processing, structure, properties and performance of advanced engineering metallic materials, with emphasis in new fabrication and characterization techniques.
Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:
- Novel techniques for microstructure characterization of structural alloys.
- Fracture mechanics applied to structural integrity.
- Advances in light alloys (Al, Ti, Mg) for aeronautical and vehicle applications.
- Recent developments in steels for automotive industry and for gas/oil pipelines.
- Current trends in stainless steels.
