2001 TMS Fall Meeting: TMS/SPE PAD Polymer Materials Conference



November 4–8, 2001 · TMS FALL MEETING 2001 · Indianapolis, Indiana

The TMS Fall Meeting 2001 will be headquartered at the Westin Indianapolis Hotel, Indianapolis, Indiana, November 48, 2001. All TMS technical sessions and events will take place in the Indiana Convention Center. TMS Committee Meetings will take place at the Westin Indianapolis Hotel. ASM events will take place at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.

Focusing on physical metallurgy and materials, the TMS Fall Meeting 2001 will feature a wide array of technical symposia sponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). The TMS 2001 Fall Meeting is being held with the ASM Materials Solutions Conference & Exhibit, the 21st ASM Heat Treating Society Conference & Show, and the TMS/SPE PAD Polymer Materials Conference.The TMS Fall Meeting draws visitors from around the world and is a must for anyone interested in the latest research and development in physical metallurgy and materials. The meeting features numerous technical symposia covering everything from metal-matrix composites, polymers, and computational thermodynamics, friction stir welding, solidifications, materials design, to alloy phases--just to name a few of the many topics discussed.

TMS/SPE PAD POLYMER MATERIALS CONFERENCE

OTHER SYMPOSIA

The TMS/SPE PAD Polymer Materials Conference will also include the following symposia:


MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR & CONSTITUTIVE MODELING OF POLYMERS, POLYMER COMPOSITES, & POLYMER-BASED NANOCOMPOSITES
DR. JOZEF BICERANO Dow Chemical Corporation
ALAN J. LESSER Conte Research Center, University of Massachusetts


The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for discussion between researchers from broad backgrounds on the mechanical behavior (including static, dynamic and time dependent), constitutive modeling, and model validation of polymers and polymer composites, including nanocomposites. Papers relating to the molecular level response, interface response, or architecture to the macroscopic performance are of particular interest.
     

PROCESSING/PROPERTY RELATIONSHIPS IN POLYMER-MATRIX COMPOSITES AND NANOCOMPOSITES
RODNEY ANDREWS Center for Applied Energy, University of Kentucky
JOHN KARDOS Washington University of St. Louis


This symposium provides a forum for researchers, materials suppliers and industrial users to present technical information on the relationship between processing methods and the resultant properties of polymer composites and nanocomposites. Papers will be presented on new materials and processing methods, and the effects processing methods on the mechanical, chemical, thermal, optical and electrical properties.
     

POLYMERS AND OTHER ORGANICS FOR ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS: MICRO-TO NANO-TECHNOLOGY
PROF. GEORGE MALLIARAS Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Cornell University

This symposium will cover a broad range of topics in the area of electronic applications of polymers and smaller organic molecules as passive and active layers. Topics on passive layers will include materials issues relating to low-k polymers and their applications as inter-level dielectric materials and electronic packaging materials. The conference will also cover materials, processing and performance issues relating to organic/polymeric electronic and photonic devices including transistors, light emitting diodes, sensors and solar cells.
     

RADIATION AND THERMAL DEGRADATION OF POLYMER MATERIALS
Topics in this symposium will span the areas of active interest in the nuclear industry (NPP Containment coatings and cables), defense, and industrial sectors. Papers are invited pertaining to basic, applied, and industrial research concerning any effects of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum (i.e. IR, UV, X-Ray, GAMMA) and particulate radiational (alpha, beta, neutron) effects on the structural integrity of polymers and other organic materials.
