th International Symposium on Superalloy 718 and Derivatives

Corporate Sponsors

8th International Symposium on Superalloy 718 and Derivatives
September 28-October 1, 2014
Marriott City Center • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


The symposium covers all aspects of metallurgical processing, materials behavior and microstructural performance for a distinct class of 718 type superalloys and derivatives. There are continuing innovations relative to these alloys as well as novel processing techniques which continue to extend applications in very challenging environments ranging from corrosion resistance in the deep sea to high-stressed space applications.

This technical meeting will focus on Alloy 718 and Superalloys in this class relative to alloy and process development, production, product applications, trends and the development of advanced modeling tools. The symposium provides an opportunity for authors to present technical advancements relative to a broad spectrum of areas while assessing their impact on related fields associated with this critical alloy group.

This conference is sponsored by the TMS High Temperature Alloy Committee of the Structural Materials Division and by ASM International.

Publication of the proceedings will be in the form of a CD available at the conference.
