The Eleventh International Conference
on Computational Structures Technology
Dubrovnik, Croatia
4-7 September 2012
Material Technology
organised by Prof. R. Lackner
Universität Innsbruck, Austria
Session Aims and Scope
Nowadays the performance of materials is not exclusivily defined by the achieved mechanical properties. In fact, the entire material history, ranging from its production process, its performance at use, and recycle properties must be considered. Accordingly, the optimization of existing material systems as well as the development of innovative materials requires consideration of the material composition and morphology - How they can be achieved during the production process and how they affect the mechanical, thermal, ... properties of the material.

The objective of this session is to reflect recent research efforts and progress towards improved understanding of the material's performance and its link to composition and morphology. In this respect, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Concepts relating effective material properties to composition and morphology
  • Modelling and simulation of the material production process
  • Optimization of material's performance
  • Realistic prediction of durability aspects of materials
  • Identification of material properties using combined experimental/theoretical techniques
