Materials Under Extreme Conditions and Nanophase Materials: Proceedings of Symposium B on Materials Under Extreme Condition and Symposium C on Nanop
The contents of the Symposium B on Materials under Extreme Conditions cover a variety of extremes, in particular high rates of deformation, low temperatures, high temperatures, high pressure, thermal shock, high currents, corrosion and wear, surface processing, and high purity. The subjects are arranged in the following sequence: mechanical properties of metallic and ceramic materials under various extreme conditions, wear, surface properties and processing, internal stresses and high pressure and high purity. The Symposium C on Nanophase Materials dealt primarily with the preparation methods and physical/chemical properties of ultrafine grained polycrystalline materials and was particularly concerned with the relationship between manufacturing conditions and properties of these nanophase materials. The subjects covered include ultrafine particle synthesis, consolidation and properties of nanophase metals, nanoceramics and nanocomposites.
