About this Symposium
Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2016
Symposium Failure Analysis and Prevention
Organizer(s) Burak Akyuz, ATS, Inc.
Scope This symposium is designed as a forum for the exchange of information and knowledge regarding materials-related failure analysis and prevention. Invited papers would include those describing investigations of failures resulting from design, manufacturing, service and materials issues. Target attendees will include engineers and scientists from all levels of analytical expertise and all related backgrounds, not just materials engineers. Primary emphasis will be placed upon failure analysis for problem solving, however, papers concerning litigation forensic evaluations are also solicited. The following topics are of special interest: fatigue and fracture – metals, tools and techniques, Non-metallic Materials/Fabrics/Composites, Cold Cases/Historical, Corrosion/Marine Failure, Complex Cases, High Performance Vehicles, Energy.
