Symposium SF06—Recent Advances in Structural Materials from Bulk to Nanoscale

Joint symposium with Korean Institute of Metals and Materials

Mechanical properties of structural materials for a variety of engineering applications require the use of microstructural engineering at varying length scales. Completely new alloys such as the complex concentrated alloys, self-healing metals are receiving much attention as up-to-date method in achieving improved mechanical properties in bulk alloy systems. In addition, nanoscale metals are known to have excellent strength due to their unique deformation mechanisms, and there are efforts in utilizing the nanoscale metals in 3D hierarchical structures. The aim of this symposium is to cover recent advances in fabrication, advanced microstructural characterization, mechanical properties analysis, and modeling of structural materials with the focus of understanding the effect of different microstructural engineering at varying length scales.

2022 MRS Spring Meeting Symposium Organizer Seung Min Han (KAIST) discusses Symposium SF06 and the joint programming with the Korean Institute of Metals and Materials: 

Topics will include:

  • Strength and plasticity at different length scales and the deformation mechanisms.
  • Nanocomposites and multilayers
  • 3D hierarchical structures composed of metal nanostructures
  • High and medium entropy alloys
  • Self-healing alloys
  • Alloy fabrication and processing methods
  • Advanced characterization tools for microstructure analysis
  • Numerical model for designing of new alloys and mechanical behavior analysis
