Joints in high-temperature alloys

A one-day meeting is to be held at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) on 20 November 2002. It will focus on the joining of materials in high-temperature power plant and aerospace applications. Presentations will be given by invited experts from academia and industry, providing a comprehensive review of the subject. They will cover aspects of microstructure interpretation, modelling and the relationship with performance in the context of alloy joints for elevated temperature applications. The emphasis will be on welding, but other methods of joining, including brazing, friction processes and diffusion bonding, will also be addressed. The event will mainly cover nickel alloys and steels of particular interest to the power generation and aerospace industries. The emphasis of the meeting is on the interactions between microstructure and elevated temperature properties of joints made in these materials. The subject matter should be of value to industrialists involved in manufacture, plant operations and refurbishment, and to academic staff and students wishing to learn about the latest developments in this vital sector of the power plant and aerospace industries.
