Reaching New Heights: Materials Innovation in the Aerospace Industry

TMS 2012 Annual Meeting & Exhibition
March 11–15, 2012 • Orlando, Florida

New materials development is at a crucial stage of evolution, with integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) and new data sharing breakthroughs paving the way to remarkable time and cost reductions in product deployment. The aerospace industry, in particular, is a demonstrated leader in accelerating materials innovation. 

Through a series of cutting-edge case studies, “Reaching New Heights: Materials Innovation in the Aerospace Industry” offered insights that can be applied to many aspects of product manufacturing, with significant impact on economic security and the race to heightened competitiveness. This special plenary session of the TMS 2012 Annual Meeting & Exhibition was moderated by Charles Ward, chief of the Metals, Ceramics, & Nondestructive Evaluation Division, U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, and editor, Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation (IMMI). The program was presented in cooperation with the TMS journal, Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation (IMMI
