Magnesium Workshop Madrid 2013
An International Workshop on Processing-Microstructure-Mechanical Property of Magnesium Alloys
May 21-24, 2013, Madrid, Spain
Mg and Mg alloys are hexagonal close packed (HCP) metals, which exhibit a variety of deformation mechanisms (including slip, twinning and grain boundary sliding) dependent on the loading conditions (temperature, strain rate, etc.) as well as on the microstructure (texture, grain size, etc.) and therefore the processing. Although a great deal of progress has been made in our understanding of the deformation behavior of Mg alloys, a rigorous knowledge of the transitions leading to changes in the dominant deformation mode is still lacking along with how to control the microstructure in order to optimize the mechanical behavior. This workshop is aimed at elucidating these issues by bringing together leading experts from both academy and industry.
Fundamentals of Friction Stir Welding and Processing Short Course
June 9-11, 2013, University of North Texas, Denton, Texas
Friction stir welding (FSW) was invented by TWI, Cambridge, UK and patented in 1991. In the last twenty years, the research community has made significant advances in understanding of the process, and numerous industrial applications have been taken to full implementation. During the same period friction stir processing (FSP) has been developed in parallel with FSW, and essentially employs FSW tooling to perform local thermomechanical treatments rather than to make joints.
An International Workshop on the Mechanical Behavior of Nanoscale Multilayers
October 1-4, 2013, Madrid, Spain
Nanoscale multilayers or nanolaminates are one-dimensional nanostructured materials made up by alternating layers of two or more materials while keeping each individual layer thickness below ~100 nm. Different layered combinations can be found (metal-metal, metal-ceramic and ceramic-ceramic) offering unique mechanical, optical, magnetic and electronic properties suitable for applications as irradation-resistant materials in nuclear engineering, tribological coatings, high performance capacitors for energy storage, integrated circuit interconnects, data storage and X-ray optics.
TMS 2013 Industrial Aluminum Electrolysis
The Definitive Course on the Theory and Practice of Primary Aluminum Production
October 20-24, 2013, Doha, Qatar
This is the definitive course on the theory and practice of primary aluminum production. Participants will be enriched by this 4.5-day course, which will provide a comprehensive understanding of the electrolysis process, as well as an overview of the state-of- the-art aluminum production.
TMS ON-LINE COURSES
The TMS Metal-Matrix Composites course provides a comprehensive overview of composite materials with a focus on light weighting and aluminum. The course is intended for the following audience of metallurgical and materials industry professionals:
- Graduate/Undergraduate Students
- Non-technical Marketing and Sales Professionals
This course comprises six modules containing audio, visual, and text teaching materials.
Fundamentals of Aluminum Production
This video series is an excellent introduction to the aluminum production process and includes actual footage of cast shop operations. Developed by Kaiser, it provides an in-depth look at the basics of aluminum production from the first research done by Hall and Heroult through modern automated aluminum processing. This course is intended for non-engineers.
Course Discussions Include:
- Importance of anode and cathode performance
- Maintenance of pot operations
- Reducing production costs and waste through process improvement
