Conference themes include the broad areas of:
- Material behaviour and modelling and its numerical implementation,
- Process modelling (forming, joining, machining, casting, welding/joining, additive manufacturing, etc., of metals, polymers and composites) and its numerical implementation,
- Conventional and novel methods of forming and joining metals, and
- Polymer and composite processing.
Corrosion of nuclear materials, i.e. the interaction between these materials and their environments, is a major issue for plant safety as well as for operation and economic competitiveness. Understanding these corrosion mechanisms, the systems and materials they affect, and the methods to accurately measure their incidence is of critical importance to the nuclear industry. Combining assessment techniques and analytical models into this understanding allows operators to predict the service life of corrosion-affected nuclear plant and storage canister materials, and to apply the most appropriate maintenance and mitigation options to ensure safe and economic long-term operation and waste storage.
The summer school will cover all necessary topics, starting with fundamental electrochemistry, to provide a self-consistent understanding of nuclear corrosion issues.
A strong focus will be on the development of scalable processes, novel modelling or characterization techniques as well as material properties that can be achieved using particles and that would be hard to obtain using other approaches. Anisotropic, complex particles and supra-particles that bring new or multiple functionalities to materials are of particular interest.
ALUEXPO will be the greatest industry meeting with “Alus’11” where the technological and academic developments will be discussed with the sector in this growing exhibition areas.
Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is becoming increasingly important for industrial applications. Fascinating engineering solutions paired with exciting economic benefits are strong drivers for R&D efforts worldwide. The International Symposium Additive Manufacturing (ISAM) highlights latest developments and challenges in additive manufacturing.
Combined into one joint conference, Laser Symposium and ISAM will provide a unique platform for the exchange of ideas and for industrial networking. As participant, you will benefit from overlaps in content and gain exciting insights into new topics.
