February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

This course provides a review of the most recent electrolysis cells, detailed demonstration of a cell retrofit from 12.8 kWh/kg to 10 kWh/kg, and a workshop on HHCellVolt usage. Experienced reduction process engineers and reduction R&D researchers involved in the modeling and development of new cell technology or the retrofit of existing cell technology would benefit from this course.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

This short course will cover key aspects of processing bauxite to alumina including digestion, precipitation, impurities, solid-liquid separation, calcination as well as issues and opportunities associated with the residue generated.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

This course will offer hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises to strengthen the understanding of materials thermodynamics, diffusion, and precipitation. Topics will also cover engineering applications with case studies and hands-on demonstrations.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

The Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE) is an open source framework aiding in the development of scientific simulation tools. This workshop will cover everything necessary to utilize MOOSE and its modules in the creation of new materials applications to predict the coevolution of microstructure and properties.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

The Center for PRedictive Integrated Structural Materials Science (PRISMS) is creating a unique framework for accelerated predictive materials science. Through this course, participants will become familiar with the PRISMS Software toolset, a powerful suite of massively parallel, open-source software capable of integrated multi-scale computational simulations for predicting microstructural evolution and mechanical behavior of metals and alloys.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

This workshop will address new demands on interconnection materials at all levels, including traditional and novel lead-free solders, conductive adhesive, whisker mitigation, solders and epoxies for the automotive sector, reinforcing epoxy, substrates, package reliability, and failure analysis.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

This course will review in detail how spent potlining (SPL) is formed (chemistry), health and safety aspects, and how it is generated (removed from pots), transported (including under Basel convention), and processed. Instructors will provide an in-depth review of all mature processing options and then will look at what is under development, as well. It will provide a truly comprehensive insight into what happens today with SPL on a worldwide basis.

February 23, 2020 • Held in conjunction with the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition • San Diego, California

The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with current AM processes; current AM practice for metals, polymers, and ceramics; modeling of AM processes, microstructural evolution, and service properties; and current challenges and research opportunities.
