Location Madrid, , Spain
Scope "Processing-Microstructure-Property Relationships and Deformation Mechanisms of Magnesium Alloys" Mg and Mg alloys are hexagonal close packed (HCP) metals, which exhibit a variety of deformation mechanisms (including slip, twinning and grain boundary sliding) dependent on the loading conditions (temperature, strain rate, etc.) as well as on the microstructure (texture, grain size, etc.) and therefore the processing. Although a great deal of progress has been made in our understanding of the deformation behavior of Mg alloys, a rigorous knowledge of the transitions leading to changes in the dominant deformation mode is still lacking along with how to control the microstructure in order to optimize the mechanical behavior. This workshop is aimed at elucidating these issues by bringing together leading experts from both academy and industry. Main Topics: -Processing-microstructure relationships (wrought, cast and semi-solid processing and combinations among them) -Alloying and microstructure effects on deformation and recrystallization mechanisms -Damage and fracture -Rational design of microstructures for optimum formability and mechanical behavior -Multi-scale modeling and multi-physics approaches to deformation, damage, and fracture -State-of-the-art techniques for microstructural and mechanical characterization (3D materials science, in situ mechanical testing, nanomechanics, etc.)
