EUROMAT 2017 Symposia on Processing
C5 “Interface Design and Modelling, Wetting and High-Temperature Capillarity,” organized by S. Agathopoulos and F. Valenza
C6 “Joining,” organized by I. Kaban and C. Sommitsch
C7 “Steel Making,” organized by J. Schenk and S. Papaefthymiou
C8 “Solidification, Casting, Foundry and Liquid Metal Processing,” organized by A. Karantzalis and A. Kennedy
Symposium C5 focused on research in the fields of surfaces and interfaces, wetting and capillarity in materials, and materials processing.
Joining techniques such as brazing and diffusion bonding, electron beam welding, resistance spot welding, electromagnetic pulse technology welding, and riveting were the scope of Symposium C6. Recent experimental and theoretical studies on the characterization and modeling of the joining processes and obtained joints were presented and discussed.
The latest scientific and technological advances in solidification, casting, and industrial practice optimization, and development for currently produced cast aluminum alloys and steels, along with other special-purpose alloy systems, were part of the discussions held at Symposia C7 and C8.
