Integration of Materials Science and Nondestructive Evaluation for Materials Characterization
This symposium marks the intersection of two communities—materials science and nondestructive evaluation—to assess the current state of the art and to define the path forward. Experts in the field of nondestructive characterization of microstructure will give overview talks and historical perspectives and provide vision and direction to push the envelope and advance these technologies.
Mechanical Behavior at the Nanoscale II
This symposium focuses on the mechanical properties of small-volume and low-dimensional materials. These range from nanowires and nanotubes, to microscale or nanoscale materials such as pillars, particles, and thin films.
Mechanical Behavior Related to Interface Physics II
This symposium will focus on recent achievements in materials development in terms of the understanding of deformation mechanisms, the exploitation of advanced properties, the testing technologies for characterization of small volumes of material, and the 3-D tomographic analysis of defects.
Multiscale Approaches to Hydrogen-Assisted Degradation of Metals
This symposium will promote the exchange of ideas and information regarding the application of cutting-edge theoretical and experimental methods to industrial problems involving hydrogen-assisted degradation of metals. A particular focus of the symposium will be multiscale modeling, as well as integrated theoretical and experimental approaches to hydrogen-microstructure interactions.
