Advanced Structural Materials

The intended focus of this symposium is the production, characterization and application of structural materials i.e., materials that are used for their mechanical, thermal, oxidation, corrosion and wear properties. This includes novel and conventional synthesis, shaping and fabrication procedures, phase identification as produced by thermomechanical, thermal treatment or sintering, production of massive nanostructures and nanocomposites, characterization by local and bulk techniques (electron microscopy, diffraction, spectroscopies, etc.) as well as applications on the basis of mechanical properties but also related to other properties. Simulation by analytical and numerical techniques applied to the above properties is also within the scope of the symposium. All materials are considered i.e., metal, alloys, ceramics, composites, polymers. Summarizing, the topic is very broad and includes all possibilities to improve existing materials regarding their structural properties.

Topics will include (but not be limited to):

• Synthesis of materials for mechanical, thermal, oxidation, corrosion and wear properties.
• Shaping and fabrication procedures.
• Massive nanostructures and nanocomposites.
• Characterization by local and bulk techniques (electron microscopy, diffraction, spectroscopies, etc.).
• Simulation by analytical and numerical methods.
• Phase identification,
• Thermomechanical treatments.
