|This symposium provides an opportunity of sharing recent advances in microstructure, phase transformations, properties, mechanical and stress corrosion, of light-weight composites (metal matrix, ceramic matrix and polymer matrix) and materials. Focus will also be on the improvements in composites containing boron compounds for high temperature applications. The next generations of alloys and composites for Aerospace, Automotive and other structural applications will be expected to possess multiple advanced properties in addition to high strength and toughness. In Aerospace applications, the composites will be subjected to much greater extreme conditions of temperature, pressure and radiations. This annual conference attracts materials scientists and engineers from all over the world, and provides a venue for faster technology dissemination.
