||Phase transformation is still one of the most effective and efficient means to produce desired microstructures in materials for various applications. This symposium is the fourth in a series of annual TMS symposia focusing on phase transformations and microstructural evolution in materials during processing and in service. It intends to bring together theoretical, experimental and computational experts to assess the current status of theories of phase transformations and microstructure evolution in solid states. In addition to fundamental understanding of the mechanisms underlying phase transformations and microstructure evolution, such as interface related effects, attention will also be given to the utilization of unique transformation pathways to develop novel microstructures for advanced structural and functional materials. Examples of studying these transformation kinetics and microstructure evolution behaviors through novel in-situ and ex-situ characterization techniques are sought.
Our signature sessions within our symposium this year include (i) Phase transformations and microstructure evolution under extreme environmental conditions and (ii) Multiferroics and thermoelectric materials. The former topic may include such conditions as irradiation by high energy particles (both ions and neutrons); shock loading via high velocity impact; processing via Additive Manufacturing and/or other unique or severe thermo-mechanical cycling processes; and extremes in high or low temperatures.
Beyond our signature sessions, we encourage abstracts related to but not limited to phase transformations in steels and ferrous alloys, non-ferrous alloys, ceramics, and other materials.
