MECHANICS, RESOURCE AND DIAGNOSTICS OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES
The International Conference on MECHANICS, RESOURCE AND DIAGNOSTICS OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURESpursues the traditions of the conferences entitled “Mechanics of Microinhomogeneous Materials and Fracture” and “Resource and Diagnostics of Materials and Structures”, which have been held since 2001.
The Conference is held within the Complex plan of the basic scientific research on Advanced Materials with a Multilevel Hierarchic Structure for New Technologies and Reliable Structures.
Initiating the effort of researchers working in the fields of mechanics of materials, material science and nondestructive testing, as well as industrial specialists, for solving scientific and applied problems. Representatives from industry and concerned organizations will have a chance to meet and discuss their problems with scientific experts, to make reports and to participate in debates.
The scientific significance of the Conference
Generalization of experience and interdisciplinary approach to the evaluation of the service life and diagnostics of materials and structures, development of scientific ties among research groups working in this field. Exchange of advanced scientific experience.
The subject-matter of the event corresponds to the priority lines of basic research in the field of material sciences and takes into consideration world development trends.
A special feature of the Conference is participation of specialists working in different lines of research, and this enables us to unite researchers working in mechanics of materials, material science and nondestructive testing and attract industry experts to solving scientific and applied problems. The Conference will cover the post important areas of basic research, such as:
∑ New techniques for studying and predicting the service life of mechanisms and structures under production and operation, which are based on a complex approach to the evaluation of a current state of engineering and functional materials in terms of nondestructive testing, material science and mechanics.
∑ Methodology of using the results of nondestructive testing and material science analysis in models of mechanics to predict the service life of materials and structures.
∑ State-of-the-art technologies of material design, production, processing and testing aimed at increasing the level of functional properties, durability, reliability and survivability of machine parts and structural components operated under extreme conditions.
∑ Interdisciplinary approach to studying advanced
materials with a multilevel hierarchic structure in order to
create new processes and reliable structures.
