||The modern materials for automotive, energy and construction applications upon which modern societies depend, all rely on the understanding of phase transformations in alloy systems. It is to this area that Professor Gary R. Purdy has made seminal contributions over a dedicated period of more than 50 years. This symposium is dedicated to Professor Gary R. Purdy on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The scope of symposium reflects his interests in phase transformations and microstructure evolution in multi-component systems. The topics covered will include:
• Equilibrium and dynamic properties of interfaces with special emphasis on the phenomena of segregation, contact conditions at migrating interfaces, free energy dissipation at the interface and deviations from local-equilibrium.
• Interface Structure and application of O-lattice theory.
• Diffusion-induced Boundary Migration and Cellular Precipitation.
• Modelling of phase transformation kinetics.
||Planned: A print-only volume
