About this Symposium
Meeting 2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Metal-Matrix Composites Innovations, Advances and Applications: An SMD Symposium in Honor of William C. Harrigan, Jr.
Sponsorship TMS Structural Materials Division
TMS: Composite Materials Committee
Organizer(s) Srivatsan S Tirumalai, The University of Akron
Yuzheng Zhang, Gamma Alloys
William Harrigan, Gamma Technology, LLC
Scope This symposium is being held in honor of Dr. William C. Harrigan, Jr., to bring to light his outstanding contributions resulting from dedicated, diligent and dynamic contributions in the domains spanning processing, characterization, property evaluation, failure analysis, applications, and large-scale commercialization. The goal of this inter-disciplinary symposium is to bring together developments from the onset of initiation to current state-of-the-art on all aspects related to the processing, fabrication, characterization, mechanical property evaluation, failure analysis and potentially viable choice for both existing and emerging applications. The family of composites, span the entire spectrum of metals including the intermetallics. The conference will certainly provide an attractive forum for presenting the advances on aspects both related and relevant to materials processing, fabrication, characterization, quantification, both by way of properties and failure, by both researchers and engineers working in industry, national research laboratories, and academia. Keynote, Invited and Contributed talks will be included. The Key-Note and Invited papers from leading edge academic and industrial research settings will provide a lucid and comprehensive overview of the current status and potential future directions for both research and applications. Contributed papers will attempt to cover specific problems in the same areas. The topics of interest include the following:

- Metals and Metal-matrix composites
- Nano-metal based composites
- Intermetallic-based composites
