Materials Characterization and Properties Overview

SYMPOSIUM: Characterization of Minerals, Metals, and Materials
PROCEEDINGS:
EPD Congress 2005.
The symposium will provide an update to the current progress in characterization studies in minerals, metals, and materials industry. The scope includes current industrial applications, research and developments, and innovative fundamental researches.

SYMPOSIUM: Neutron Scattering in Materials Research
This symposium will cover neutron scattering methods of materials research including: powder neutron diffraction and single crystal diffraction, engineering neutron diffraction, small-angle neutron scattering, neutron reflectometry, and inelastic scattering. Invited talks will emphasize the new and future capabilities of these experimental methods for materials research. Contributed presentations are welcome in any of these fields.

SYMPOSIUM: Neutron Diffraction Characterization of Mechanical Behavior
Application of neutron diffraction in engineering materials characterization becomes increasingly prevalent due to its unique ability to provide microscopic insights to the mechanical behavior of advanced materials and components. The symposium will provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent experimental results. Specific topics will include:
(1) polycrystalline deformation mechanisms,
(2) mechanical behavior of composites,
(3) residual stress measurements, and
(4) advances in instrumentation and data acquisition/analysis scheme.

SYMPOSIUM: Corrosion Sensors and Monitoring
Early warning of corrosion or coating degradation through the use of advanced sensors and monitoring techniques can make a substantial impact on the ability to preserve structural integrity. This approach can also lead to reductions in the risk of fatigue failure that is initiated by corrosion damage. Environmental information from monitoring systems also allows operators to optimize local maintenance schedules by focusing effort where it is most required. The purpose of this symposium is to bring engineers and scientists together to present and discuss new strategies and technologies for corrosion detection and monitoring. Topics will include but not be limited to electrochemical noise methods, sensor arrays, scanning electrode techniques, and optical methods.

SYMPOSIUM: Microstructural Processes in Irradiated Materials
Radiation can produce dramatic improvements or degradation in the properties of materials. An understanding of the microstructural changes occurring during irradiation is critical for the development of predictive models. The scope of this symposium will focus on the microstructural changes occurring in solids during ion, electron, neutron, gamma ray, or x-ray irradiation. This symposium, which is the sixth in a series of symposia held every two years, is intended to bring together researchers working on different materials systems so that similarities and differences in radiation effects can be compared. Materials of interest include metals, intermetallics, semiconductors, insulators, and superconductors.

SYMPOSIUM: Processing ⇔ Properties
Understanding the connections between processing and properties is fundamental to the ability of materials engineers to develop and implement improved processes and products. A traditional strength of the TMS Annual Meeting is programming covering the full range of processing from basic extraction through end product manufacturing processes. The themes in this area for 2005 are:

  • Aluminum Primary Processing
  • Magnesium Technology
  • Extractive Processing
  • Downstream Metals Processing
  • Surface Engineering
