VIEW THE FINAL TECHNICAL PROGRAM
Downstream Metals Processing Overview
SYMPOSIUM: Friction Stir Welding and Processing III
This conference will highlight recent advances in friction
stir welding and processing.
SYMPOSIUM: Frontiers in Solidification Science
This symposium will focus on emerging developments
in solidification Science and the associated experimental,
analytical, and computational techniques used for
their investigation. The objective is to bring to the forefront
those questions which are critical to the advancement
of the field and to discuss the benefits and limitations
of various new approaches. Topics of interest
include novel experimental and theoretical approaches
leading to the advancement of Solidification Science in
the areas of morphological stability and selection, nucleation
phenomena, chemical partitioning and segregation,
microstructural evolution, multiple length-scale
phenomena, intrinsic properties of crystal-melt interfaces,
impurity effects at crystal-melt interfaces, growth
mechanisms, and interface kinetics. Several contributed
abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. Others
will be selected for poster presentations. All posters
will be presented at a formal poster session/reception,
which will be held Monday evening before the Solidification Committee meeting.
SYMPOSIUM: Shape Casting — The John
PROCEEDINGS: Shape Casting of Metals
An international three day symposium is being held to
recognize Prof. John Campbell’s many years of service
to the field of shape castings. The symposium will celebrate
his exceptionally productive career and contributions
as a researcher, friend, and mentor. Highlights
of the event will include:
- A comprehensive technical program, focusing
on the contributions of Prof. Campbell, such as
his 10-Rules for high quality castings, gating
system design, process modeling, and structureprocess-property relationships.
- An in-depth exploration of the latest casting
innovations in quality, reliability, and process design
- Presentations by researchers from around the
world on leading-edge casting technologies.
SYMPOSIUM: The Langdon Symposium: Flow and
Forming of Crystalline Materials
This symposium is designed to honor Prof. Terence G.
Langdon on the occasion of his 65th birthday, by bringing
together many of his former students, research colleagues,
friends, and all interested in a symposium devoted
to his research interests over the past 40 years.
It will have three inter-related thrust areas associated
with flow and forming:
- Creep (including the creep
behavior of metals, ceramics and composites; creep
mechanisms; the role of grain boundary sliding; microstructures
- Superplasticity (including
mechanisms of flow; factors infl uencing ductility; the
role of cavitation; superplastic forming; industrial applications).
- Severe plastic deformation - SPD (including
equal-channel angular pressing and other SPD
techniques; microstructural development; mechanical
properties and superplastic flow after SPD; mechanisms
associated with SPD processing).
SYMPOSIUM: Recycling - General Sessions
PROCEEDINGS: Light Metals 2005 and EPD Congress 2005
Sessions will cover innovative research work, advances
in ongoing research, and general industrial practices from
recycling of materials. Reports of work in other fields, including
optimization of physical, aqueous, and thermal
processing of scraps and waste; environmental and economic
impacts; material selection and design based on
recyclability; life-cycle analysis of materials; properties;
and applications of recovered materials are welcomed.
