The Fifth International Symposium on Superalloys 718, 625, 706, and Derivatives,
sponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society
(TMS), will be held June 17-20, 2001, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, in Pittsburgh,
This is the premier symposium devoted exclusively to superalloys 718, 625, and 706. It follows in the tradition of the four previous meetings which were very successful in exploring the state of knowledge on these most important superalloys. The corresponding proceedings volumes are acknowledged as the single-source reference on the progress and problems from 1989 to 1997, and it is expected that this millennial meeting will continue the tradition.
All technical and social activities will take place at the Embassy Suites Hotel, a first-class hotel only minutes away from the Pittsburgh Airport. The hotel will provide courtesy pick-up to and from the airport via their courtesy phone at the airport.
The purpose of this special emphasis symposium is to
provide a forum for researchers, producers, and users to present the most recent
technical information on these materials.
Activity continues at a high-pace and new information has been obtained since 1996. Alloy 718 is used in highly stressed parts in gas turbines and rocket engines, springs, bolting, and components in nuclear reactors. As a natural derivative of Alloy 718, Alloy 706 has gained stature and usage in land-based combustion turbines for generating electricity. Alloy 625 is used in chemical and petroleum processing equipment, as well as off-shore oil and gas production equipment.
