Alloys and intermetallics are without doubt the most commercially important advanced materials, and they are among the most innovative: Thousands of alloys are patented each year. The majority of the steel now sold, by value, uses compositions that are still in patent – less than 20 years old. Many experts describe an ongoing revolution in the field. Experimental characterization and computer modeling methods are coming together to reveal the atomistic scale origins of macroscopic materials performance such as strength, creep, and fatigue. There is potential for intelligent design and discovery of materials with remarkable new properties far from current compositions.

This symposium will highlight this potential and early success stories. It will feature exiting new materials, techniques, and industrially relevant insights into alloy performance.
