International Conference on High-Temperature Shape Memory Alloys- From Basics to Applications: 5-8 May 2015

SAVE-THE-DATE for the International Conference on High-Temperature Shape Memory Alloys- From Basics to Applications to be held May 5-8, 2015 in Wildbad Kreuth, Germany.

Lately, high-temperature shape memory alloys have attracted a lot of interest as the demand for components operating at temperature above 100 °C has grown significantly. There have been substantial advances lately, but challenging issues still limit the widespread use of these unique materials. The conference will provide a forum to present and discuss the latest result in this rapidly evolving field, and aims at bridging the gap from basics to applications.

The topics of the conference will include:

  • Constitution and Alloy Development
  • Processing
  • Characterization and Testing
  • Functional and Structural Degradation
  • Modeling
  • Applications

The full Call for Papers will be released soon. For further information, please see the conference website.

Organizing Committee:

  • Ralf Drautz, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
  • Gunther Eggeler, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
  • Jan Frenzel, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
