Heterogeneous Materials: Processing, Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Heterogeneous Metals and Alloys
Date : 23 - 28 Jun 2019
Venue : HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus, HKUST


Heterogeneous materials are materials with domains that have dramatically different mechanical and physical properties. There are a large number of natural and synthetic heterogeneous materials such as bones, woods, animal tissues, plant cells, sands, soils, multiphase composites, concretes, sandwich structures, foams, and multi-layered structures, etc. They are widely utilized in both structural and functional components in different devices. The research field on heterogeneous materials is exciting and growing rapidly into multidisciplinary areas. It is also important to disseminate these research results to the academic community, which will benefit diverse researchers and scientists in Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Biology. Some potential conference subject areas will include, but not limited to the following:

Heterogeneous Materials for Structural Applications
Multifunctional and Multiscale-architectured Materials
Dynamic Mechanical Behavior of Metals
Plastic Deformation and Strength of Metallic Materials
Gradient Microstructure in Metals
Design and Manufacturing of Heterogeneous Materials
Layered and Nanolayered Materials
Structural Stability of Metallic Materials
High and Medium Entropy Materials
