Symposium

Fundamental Issues of Structural Materials

Scope

Structural materials with high performance are essential in modern high-tech society, not only for massive construction and transportation systems, but also for electronic devices and medicine, etc. In order to achieve such materials, correct understandings of deformation and fracture phenomena, and design and development through the fundamental knowledge are mandatory. In this symposium, we invite papers that address these issues using experimental and/or theoretical approaches. Materials of our interests include bulk nanostructured metals (BNM), high-entropy alloys (HEA), compositionally complex alloys (CCA), intermetallics, ceramics in addition to conventional metals and alloys. Results of fundamental research on plasticity, fracture and other mechanical properties of such materials from variety of viewpoints, i.e., atomistic, nano-, micro- and macro-scopic length scale are welcome. The symposium will be jointly supported by two research projects funded by MEXT, Japan, i.e., Elements Strategy Initiative for Structural Materials (ESISM) and Grant in Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas on High-Entropy Alloys.
