Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of the Structure & Properties of Materials, and High Temperature Materials Committees of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining
Optimising Performance through Integrated Modelling of Microstructure
The two-day conference will promote physical/fundamental models and methods to predict microstructures of structural metallic materials, and consequently mechanical properties. The meeting will cover many industries/sectors and metallic systems, e.g. light alloys (Al, Ti, Mg), steel, superalloys and Zr alloys.
The topics covered by the conference will include:
- Latest developments in physics based models across all length scales
- Process models and application to materials manufacturing simulation
- Mechanical properties predictions from simulations of microstructure
- Integrated computational materials engineering applications
- Numerical methods and computational techniques for process and material simulation
Who should attend:
The conference is aimed at Process Metallurgists, Engineers, Materials Scientists and Physicists from industry, government agencies, and universities working to improve microstructure and mechanical properties for structural applications. The event will also be of interest to people new to the subject and those wishing to improve their understanding.
The organisers intend that the meeting should represent a global perspective of the issues.
