Structure and Properties of Materials Committee board
The Structure and Properties of Materials Committee covers a wide area of interest within material science and engineering. It acts as a focal point within the Institute for promoting the study and understanding of the relationship between the microstructure and the properties of inorganic materials including the development of the tools and techniques for microstructural characterisation and property evaluation. It achieves this through organising specialist scientific meetings and events, advising, collaborating and participating in government initiatives, and interacting with other professional Institutes and with other IOM3 committees and local materials societies.
The committee consists of members from both academia and industry and acts as a link between the two. The committee makes and supports nominations for numerous IOM3 awards and prizes in recognition for both personnel achievement and published work within the committee’s field of interest.
Dr Mike Cox
Chairman, Structure and Properties of Materials Committee
Aims and objectives
To promote interest in the structure, design, behaviour and characterisation of all materials, but with specific emphasis on inorganic metallic and ceramic materials and minerals. The Committee will act as a focal point within the Institute in this area.
