2019 DECEMBER 10-14 YOKOHAMA SYMPOSIA

Symposium

Tough Polymers

Scope

Plastics, rubber and composites that are strong and tough are essential for accelerated implementation of autonomous, pollution-free electrical vehicles. These materials will also impact all industries that use polymeric materials to achieve societal needs for safety, security and low environmental impact while raising quality of life. This symposium intends to draw researchers across the boundaries of material science, chemistry, physics, mechanics, and rheology to disseminate knowledge on recent breakthroughs in fundamental understanding and preparation of tough and toughened polymers for structural applications. We solicit researchers from related scientific disciplines to present theoretical, experimental, and computational studies in the following topics:
• New chemistry to prepare tough and toughenable polymers
• Physics of fracture and toughening
• Advances in fracture mechanics
• Novel toughening concepts
• Advanced characterization techniques

Topics
  • Polymer
  • Toughness
  • Plastics
  • Elastomer
  • Composite
  • Fracture
