||How materials interact with the environment is critical for selecting the appropriate material or material system for the application concerned. The benefits can range from increasing component life to effectively utilizing the material or material system thereby translating to reduced component lifetime cost or increased component efficiency or helping reduced emissions. This session will have three sub-sections addressing each of the key business drivers for materials interactions with the environment, namely, coatings, corrosion, and materials for harsh environments. This symposium will provide researchers worldwide the platform and the opportunity to discuss applications-based research in these key areas of interest, including: (1) Coatings: processing and applications (2) Corrosion and materials lifing (3) Materials for harsh environments including sensors.
