Symposium PM06—Advances in Intermetallic-Based Alloys for Structural and Functional Applications

This symposium is designed to focus on new understandings and developments concerning the microstructural design, processing, characterization and properties of intermetallic-based alloys and multiphase / high entropy alloys, including intermetallic compounds. Topics of interest broadly include: fundamentals of phase stability and their effects on microstructural design and microstructural degradation in extreme environments/service; developments in innovative processing from the solid, liquid and vapor states including novel additive manufacturing technologies; physical and mechanical response to various loading conditions and the role of defects in influencing them; computer modeling and simulation on novel approaches of alloy design and process optimization; advanced characterization techniques on a nanometer/atomic level (HAADF-STEM, 3DAP, neutron and synchrotron studies, etc.) and technological considerations for successful commercial applications. Intermetallic phases of interest include aluminides, silicides, Laves phases, Heusler phases, and various other geometrically- and topologically- close-packed compounds. Structural and functional applications including high/ultra-high temperature use in the aerospace and automotive industries, fossil fuel and nuclear industries, ferromagnetic, catalysis, medical, and thermoelectric power will also be considered.

Topics will include:

  • Phase equilibria and phase transformations
  • Defect structures and their evolution
  • Mechanical and physical properties
  • Deformation, fracture and underlying mechanisms
  • Advanced processing techniques including additive manufacturing
  • Advanced characterization techniques on an atomic level
  • Environmental effects including oxidation and hot corrosion
  • Intermetallic composites, novel superalloys, high entropy alloys
  • Computation and modeling studies related to intermetallic-based alloys
  • Shape memory, catalysis, magnetic, thermoelectric, energy storage and medical applications
  • Recent applications in the aircraft, automotive and other industries
