Symposium JJ: Intermetallic-based Alloys–Science, Technology, and Applications

Intermetallic-based Alloys–Science, Technology, and Applications

This symposium will focus on new understanding and developments within the realm of microstructure, processing, and properties of intermetallic compounds and multiphase alloys where intermetallic compounds are the major constituents. Topics of interest broadly include fundamentals of phase stability and their effects on microstructural design and microstructural degradation in extreme environments/service; physical and mechanical response to various loading conditions and the role of defects in influencing them; developments in innovative processing from the solid, liquid and vapor states; and technological considerations for successful commercial applications. Intermetallic phases of interest include aluminides, silicides, Laves phases and Heusler phases, and various other geometrically and topologically close-packed compounds. From an application perspective, presentations related to intermetallic compounds intended for structural and functional applications, including for high-temperature use in the aerospace and automotive industries, the fossil fuel and nuclear industries for ferromagnetic applications, catalysis, and thermoelectric power will all be considered.

Topics to be addressed include (but will not be limited to):

  • Phase equilibria and transformations
  • Defect structures and their evolution
  • Mechanical and physical properties
  • Deformation, fracture, and underlying mechanisms
  • Environmental effects, including oxidation and hot corrosion
  • Intermetallic composites and novel superalloy-type systems
  • Shape memory alloys
  • Magnetic, optical, and medical applications
  • Thermoelectric applications
  • Energy-storage applications
  • Recent applications in the aircraft, automotive, and other industries

Invited Speakers Include:

B. Bewlay (General Electric Global Research), H. Clemens (Montanuniv. Leoben, Austria), Oliver Kastner (GFZ-Potsdam, Germany), K. Kishida (Kyoto Univ., Japan), R. Ritchie, (Univ. of California, Berkeley), M. Schütze (Karl-Winnacker Inst., DECHEMA, Germany), T. Takasugi, (Osaka Prefecture Univ., Japan), M. Takeyama (Tokyo Inst. of Technology, Japan).
