The PSDK XV: Phase Stability and Diffusion Kinetics 2020 symposium sponsored by ASM International’s Alloy Phase Diagram Committee will be taking place at IMAT 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio, in September 2020. The chair for the organizing committee for the PSDK symposium is Richard Otis, JPL/Caltech. Committee members include: Paul Mason, Thermo-Calc Software; Yu Zhong, Worcester Polytechnic Institute; Ursula Kattner, NIST; and Chelsey Hargather, New Mexico Tech.
The understanding and modeling of phase stability and diffusion kinetics have been central themes of materials science and engineering, with merits in both science and technology perspectives. Advances in computational and instrumentation techniques, cross-scale modeling, and novel experimental observations continue to refine our understanding, resulting in design-capable tools for industry and education. This symposium will focus on the temporal and spatial evolution of phase constituents and compositions with due consideration for materials chemistry, processing, and applications.
Physics- and mechanism-based theory, modeling, and simulations
Fundamental and applications-oriented experimental observations
Microstructural modeling with an emphasis on using fundamental data
Phenomenological expressions and atomistic mechanisms
Methodology development and interpretation of data and databases
Multi-scale models and integration methods
Energetics and diffusivity of crystalline defects such as grain boundaries
High-throughput phase diagram determination
High-throughput tracer diffusion studies
Machine learning and artificial intelligence utilizing thermodynamic and kinetic data
Application of high-performance computing to Calphad
Effects of pressure on phase transformations and microstructure
Evolution of metastable/non-equilibrium states
Two sessions in honor of the 2020 J. Willard Gibbs Phase Equilibria awardee Mark Asta will headline this symposium.
