International Conference on Microstructure and Performance of Joints in High-Temperature Alloys

20th November 2002, London


The meeting covered the most important aspects of microstructure, modelling and performance of joints for elevated temperature applications, in the context of the power plant and aerospace industries. Joining methods included welding, brazing, friction processes and diffusion bonding, with the focus on steels and nickel base superalloys.

The one-day meeting was attended by delegates from Japan, USA, German, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium, Italy and the U.K. The presentations were all given by invited experts from academia and industry, with the aim of providing a comprehensive review of the subject. The meeting was organised by David Gooch, Andrew Strang and Harry Bhadeshia on behalf of the High Temperature Alloys Committee of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals.
