||Suppressing crystallization of metallic melts leads to the formation of metals that lack long-range order. Major advances in the fundamental understanding of glass formation and alloy design have promoted the development of so-called bulk metallic glasses, with critical casting thicknesses of several centimeters. These novel bulk metals possess a range of advantageous mechanical and functional properties, but a complete understanding of how structure relates to properties is still lacking. This symposium is a platform to discuss the recent progress made in processing, manufacturing, structure, and properties.
The Bulk Metallic Glass symposium brings together a broad range of materials researchers for a technical exchange and a discussion of the scientific issues driving research in this field. The topics of interest to this symposium include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Glass-forming ability and the glass transition
* Atomic structure
* Alloy development and processing
* Additive manufacturing of metallic glasses
* Mechanical and physical properties
* Homogeneous and inhomogeneous deformation
* Atomistic simulations
* Modelling and theory of fundamentals
The symposium will emphasize experimental, computational, and theoretical aspects of the development, processing, and properties of metallic glasses.
